Best place to buy souvenirs - EMPIRE KAZAKHSTAN (Review)

A souvenir (from French, for a remembrance or memory),memento, keepsake, or token of remembrance[1] is an object a person acquires for the memories the owner associates with it. A souvenir can be any object that can be collected or purchased and transported home by the traveler as a memento of a visit. While there is no set minimum or maximum cost that one is required to adhere to when purchasing a souvenir, etiquette would suggest to keep it within a monetary amount that the receiver would not feel uncomfortable with when presented the souvenir. The object itself may have intrinsic value, or simply be a symbol of past experience. Without the owner's input, the symbolic meaning is invisible and cannot be articulated.

Too technical ? But you get the point right ? , Living in Almaty for 3 years I haven't found a better place to buy souvenirs , of course there are shops , but the quality of the products sold by Empire Kazakhstan is too good :) and can be trusted

Empire is a manufacturer and supplier of national souvenirs and gifts in Kazakhstan. It's been only eight years since the first Empire souvenir appeared, and today the company's products are present in houses of almost every third citizen of Kazakhstan in one form or another. Even more Empire souvenirs and gifts have spread to all corners of our planet finding foreign owners and continuing to radiate warm memories about kind, generous and sunny Kazakhstan.

Empire today is:

- Not only national souvenirs, but also gifts, business accessories and personal belongings of the highest quality.
- Synonym for exclusive gift and good taste.
- Trademark of Kazakhstan on the international arena.
- Source of revival of national and cultural traditions of the country.

Empire souvenirs grant an amazing feeling of traveling back in time. Each collection is like a skilful embroidery generously permeated with culture, customs and history of the Kazakh people. Any of these works is capable to tell an extraordinary story. This is not surprising, because the company’s artists create them based on thorough study of historical facts, museum exhibits and artifacts, scrupulous investigation of folk epics, legends and details of everyday life of the nomadic people. One of the secrets of Empire’s success is the high quality of products and attention to the smallest technological details, careful selection of materials and manufacturers for each collection. Empire products are born in Kazakhstan, but made at the best factories of Europe (Italy, Switzerland, Germany, etc.) and Asia (Korea, Singapore, China, etc.). They produce limited, exclusive art objects.

I visited one of their shops located at Silk Way City Shopping Mall, 71 Tole Bi St.They had lots of nice things made in KZ. Beautiful selection, helpful staff, affordable prices.

Empire has an extensive network of boutiques—it covers all the major cities of Kazakhstan. In Almaty alone, the company has 11 outlets in big shopping malls where everyone can choose a gift for any taste.

Empire was founded in 2006, becoming, in effect, a market maker for national souvenirs and executive gifts in Kazakhstan. No wonder that after having created this market, the company immediately took a monopoly position in it. All artworks of Empire are created through coordinated work of our own first-class designers: our design office have more than 20 professionals.
