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.

Shipping information

The cost of your shipment will vary by volume, dimensions, the destination of the piece(s) and, of course, the size of the order. We will transport your rug in the most economic way possible. For single-shyrdak orders, this tends to be a door-to-door courier such as FedEx or DHL. For larger orders, air freight tends to be the most cost-effective shipping method.
