This fanciful Folk Art Parrot Ornament with enchanting hand-embroidery is stitched from locally made felted wool by artisans in rural Kyrgyzstan. The vivid crest and ribbon-like tail represent the colors of the Kyrgyz landscape. Each purchase helps sustain Kyrgyzstan’s long felting tradition—their yurt dwellings, artistic rugs and colorful clothing are all made from felt. Hanging loop included.  16"l.
