Own a Real Mongolian Ger
BioRegions International is a non-profit organization working to empower the nomadic cultures of Mongolia to survive in a rapidly-changing world. They import genuine gers from Mongolia.
- All proceeds will benefit local communities in Mongolia, directly supported projects with the semi-nomadic people of the Darhad Valley, northern Mongolia.
- These gers are 5-walled gers, hand-painted with traditional Mongolian colors, and 21 feet in diameter.
YURT related apparel and merchandise
Yurt Mama (Anna Oakley) has created a line of t-shirts and products directed toward the "yurt enthusiast". She realizes this is quite a specialized market, but she believes that people who love yurts feel quite passionate about them and living simply, in general.
"I consider myself a "yurt freak" as well, but realized there were no yurt-related items available to express my Yurt Love. So, being a graphic artist, I decided to create them myself.
I am adding new designs daily and will eventually include a line of off-grid, natural living, geodome related items as well. I also offer custom designs if you would like your company name or website URL incorporated into the artwork!"

Yurts: Living in the Round
by Becky Kemery
|"Becky Kemery's Yurts: Living in the Round is to books what a home run with three players on base is to baseball! It couldn't be better than this! Becky's book is full of practical information that's written in a clear and concise prose. It's packed with beautiful photographs and is graced by delightful stories of people who have made their next home a yurt. I highly recommend this book to anyone who's pondering ways to live more sustainably on this precious Earth."
