June is the most beautiful time of year in this country. Emerging from endless fields filled with flowers and sheep, the traveller is greeted by the vista of a shimmering lake. Located in Central Asia, the Kyrgyz Republic is landlocked, bordered by several countries, and home to multiple ethnicities with strong Russian cultural influences. With around 40% of the country situated at an altitude over 3,000 metres, Kyrgyzstan is known as the Alps of Central Asia for its rich natural beauty, comfortable climate, and lack of deserts.
The families living in the scattered villages near Lake Issyk-Kul, which is said to have been part of the Silk Road, have been making living through nomadic pastoralism and the production of wool felt since ancient times.
The MUJI and Kyrgyzstan revitalisation project, which began at the end of 2010, is celebrating its 10th anniversary of collaboration in bringing Kyrgyz goods to the market. In Found MUJI Kyrgyzstan, we look closely at the wisdom found in the traditional nomadic life and feature the handcrafted felt items produced here.
