This film tells the story of how a group of women from the artisan cooperative Arooke, in Kyrgyzstan, make the cushion cover 'Sun Boy.' The design is based on petroglyphs from the Bronze Age found in Kyrgyzstan, and the boy is one of Kyrgyzstan's national symbols.

The cushion cover is available to buy at madeandtold.com, and is part of a range of products from Central Asia all of which are accompanied with films showing how they were made.
