Social and Ethical Cases

  1. Some of foreign-owned yurt re-sellers claim to know Mongolian gers better than Mongolians. They criticize the way of yurt (ger) producing in Mongolia, which is a craft with thousands of years of tradition. Yet, they make profit by selling essentially the same product that are sold at local Mongolian market. In contrast, we follow the time-honored tradition of yurt making, while seeking improvement by applying latest advances in technology, material and design dedicated to make yurts suitable for uses outside of Mongolia.
  2. We are a business owned by Mongolians. As a result, all profits from the business stay and re-invested in Mongolia, which is a low-income country. The same cannot be said in case of other yurt sellers that are often non-Mongolians coming to Mongolia to buy low quality yurts cheap and sell at big margin.
