The art of felting has given a personal touch to our crafted Mongolian products. It has allowed the Mongolian ladies to use their traditional fabric making method to create quality beautiful products and connect them to others around the world.
Saikhan (Сайхан which means beautiful in Mongolian) is a social enterprise founded in September 2010. Through the founder's several firsthand interactions with the locals since 2007, she has gained a better insight into the lives behind the photogenic gers that spout around the capital. Sadly, many of the stories from these gers have been heart breaking ones.
With Saikhan, she hopes to provide the Mongolian ladies with a job opportunity designing and creating beautiful wool products to sell, thereby providing them with a source of income to support themselves and their children.
Winters in Mongolia are long and harsh with temperatures dropping to -40 degrees celcius. The additional income they earn will go a long way to help the ladies and their families through the upcoming winter season.
At Saikhan, she also hopes to help bring out the beauty and confidence in each lady.
