These fun, whimsical, animal-themed booties make for the perfect, eco-friendly baby gift, and also help support a great cause.
These “Zooties” from Silk Road Bazaar are handcrafted in small batches from natural fibers by local artists in the rural villages of Kyrgyzstan.
In addition to being cute, high-quality booties made from eco-friendly materials, your purchase of “Zooties” supports the development of women's rights in Kyrgyzstan, supports local artists and craftspeople, and helps reduce global poverty.
Silk Road Bazaar partners with artists in remote locations, who have limited market access and do not possess modern marketable skills, but have carried on traditional craft culture.
By living amongst these artist groups for an extended period of time, Silk Road Bazaar helps them become self-sustainable by developing their designs and business skills.
All designs and collaborations are original works of Central Asian artists and Silk Road Bazaar.
