SRB is a certified Fair Trade company, representing marginalized artist groups located in Central Asia. SRB connects with artists who are far from the capitals, who have limited market access, who do not possess modern marketable skills but have carried on traditional craft culture. Following the proverb, ‘the best way to know a man is to walk a thousand miles in his shoes,’ SRB believes that to know who they are working with and to understand their lives, they need to live like and with them. They live amongst their artist groups for an extended period of time. During that time they help them become self-sustainable by developing their designs, management techniques, quality control and computer skills.
