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.
