Presentation

“Partnership for Culture and Crafts” was founded in February 2013 by three art and craft managers with great experience in developing this sector in Kyrgyzstan. In accordance to the legislation, PCC introduces Kyrgyz handicrafts to the international market. We export mostly felt and silk products from Kyrgyz artisans to different countries all over the world. We produce traditional felt rugs (shyrdak), scarves, hats, toys, ornaments. All our items are handmade and 100% wool (and Silk for the scarves).
