The Material

Felt is a vital part of Kyrgyz tradition and is an extremely versatile renewable resource. Aidai’s beautiful and unique scarves re-made from silk and felt, hand rolled and fused into a single, one-of-a-kind textile. The silk and felt are ‘felted’ together with no stitching.

Felt is the oldest textile in the world, yet is both traditional and highly contemporary. It can be molded into any shape and is used in hundreds of applications in fashion, home decor and industry. Aidai’s work combines the traditional techniques with a modern design aesthetic, creating elegant products that seamlessly weave together the old and the new.
