Zooties are crafted by marginalized artists in Central Asia who are far from the capitals, who have limited market access and who do not possess modern marketable skills but have carried on traditional craft culture.

The founders live amongst the artist groups for an extended periods of time to help them become self-sustainable by developing their designs, management techniques, quality control and computer skills.
