About the Makers
Kyrgies products are handmade in Kyrgyzstan by skilled artisans who receive fair wages. The materials used to make their products are natural fibres including wool and leather. The wool is sourced from local, family-run farms in Kyrgyzstan, and the leather is vegetable-tanned, which avoids the use of chromium, a highly toxic metal that can leach into waterways and poison ecosystems. Kyrgies are members of 1% for the planet, which means they donate 1% of annual sales to environmental causes. They also offset their carbon emissions through Carbon Neutral.
All of our products are packaged and shipped to you from our store in Melbourne, Victoria by our small team. We use FSC certified paper bags that are padded with recycled paper pulp. When your products don't fit in one of our parcel bags, we try and reuse boxes that have been sent to us.
Postage is $12.00 flat rate, 15.00 for express in Australia, $15.00 flat rate for New Zealand and FREE POSTAGE for orders over $200.00*.
We usually ship your order within 2 business days through Australia Post. Express Post is also available and can be selected at checkout.

We will happily gift wrap products for an extra $2. This can be added at checkout along with a short note to the person receiving the gift.
When purchasing multiple products don't forget to include in your order notes if you would like the products to be wrapped separately or all together. Around Christmas time, please specify if it is a Christmas gift or not so we can choose the wrapping paper accordingly.
