Materials

Felt is made from local Kyrgyz wool through repeated hand-pressing. Together with Yurts, mountains and nomadic traditions, Felt is an iconographic material that makes up the literal fabric of this stunning country. 

Kyrgyzstan boasts a unique natural environment, and the connection between the Kyrgyz and the land is reflected in their art. Before forced collectivisation in the 1930s, Kyrgyz nomads roamed the high altitude pastures with their flocks of sheep and yaks, living in decorative felt yurts. The traditional designs were symbollic of daily and cultural life – sitting drinking horsemilk, watching eagles, the importance of wolves, horses, sheep and yaks.
