Caucasus Knits

Our new website selling knit clothing made in the Caucasus Mountains is now live. The website, , offers handmade and loomed socks, mittens, slippers and dzhurabi that are made in the villages and on the farms in the Republic of Kabardino-Balkaria.  Kabardino is on the north (Russian) side of the Caucasus and is remote, underdeveloped and spectacularly beautiful.  However, this area produces high-quality wool, in a natural, humane environment and the wool is spun into yarn and then knit into the socks, slippers and dzhurabi with the distinctive designs and colors of the region.
