Caucasus Mountain Knits
The Caucasus Mountains region is one of the world's least visited, but most stunning. Mount Elbrus, at 18,510 feet, is Europe's tallest mountain and towers in the distance above the farms and villages where our clothing is hand-made by villagers using the techniques of an age before mechanization and factory farming.
By purchasing Caucasus Mountain Knits, you are employing people in remote, impoverished Kabardino-Balkaria and helping to preserve a way of life. Have a look at the videos and photos of the mountain farms, workshops and markets where wool is harvested from sheep pastured on mountain slopes and then knit with the distinctive designs of the Nalchik region into high-quality, long-lasting clothing.
