Zooties are handcrafted from felt made from locally sourced sheep's wool in Kyrgyzstan. They are the perfect natural and environmentally conscious baby shoe.
About the artisans: Kyrgyz women hand cut, dye, and sew each pair of Zooties. It is the tradition of felt-working that brings the skill to create the quality booties. The artisan project was started by a Russian artist in 1996, who focused on the design of felt products and providing Kyrgyz women with an outlet for their talents. Equipping Kyrgyz women with business skills including design, quality control, computing, and an understanding of the market was the project of a Peace Corps volunteer, who now, six years after his service, presents the Zooties to a worldwide audience through various channels.
