Shyrdak is a mosaic rug made of felt. The word Shyrdak comes from the root shyrda, which means ‘to join together’ Each rug is completely handmade and unique. These Shyrdak felt rugs are hand-made in Kyrgyzstan in the traditional style using methods that have been passed down from generation to generation. Rugs  made from two sheets of felt that are cut into identical shapes and reassembled into a mosaic-like textile of interlocking positive and negative patterns. The Sakenalieva family is grateful when customers purchase both the negative and positive images.

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 Zumrat begins construction on your rug.
