Meet the Artisans
Silk Road Bazaar is a wholesale representative of marginalized artist groups located in Kyrgyzstan and throughout Central Asia. They connect with artists who are far from the capitals, who have limited market access, or who do not possess modern marketable skills but have carried on traditional craft culture.
Following the proverb, ‘the best way to know a man is to walk a thousand miles in his shoes,’ Silk Road believes that to know who we are working with and to understand their lives, we ourselves need to live like and with them. They live amongst their artist groups for an extended period of time, and during that time they help them become self-sustainable by developing their designs, management techniques, quality control and computer skills.
All designs and collaborations are original works of Central Asian artists and Silk Road Bazaar.
Well this soap is the best of both worlds because it's a soap & loofah in one! The lavender scent is light, not overpowering or heavy at all, but soothing. The soap lasted a very long time so it's a great value. I would definitely purchase this item again & would highly recommend it. And best of all it's empowering the women who made it 2B self sufficient so it really doesn't get any better!
