These Shyrdak felt rugs are handmade in Kyrgyzstan in the traditional style using methods that have been passed down from generation to generation.

Patterns: The sample patterns and color combinations you see here are traditional Kyrgyz designs that look good in most western living rooms. Buyers typically choose their pattern and color before Mairam begins construction on your rug.

Positive/Negative Pattern Design: Because each rug is constructed with multiple layers of hand-pressed felt, your order creates a mirrored opposite of itself (see example). The Omurzakova family is grateful when customers purchase both the negative and positive images.

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. Shyrdaks are hand-made using locally sourced sheep's wool. Each shyrdak is unique, designed and prepared individually, using the indigenous knowledge Kyrgyz of patterns, symbols, coloring and sewing techniques. First, the wool is pressed, rolled and stamped into felt. It is then dyed and hung out to dry pefore the pattern is created and cut, the yarn is spun and the piece is stiched together.
