LARGE RUG SHYRDAK – CTP519
Materials: sheep’s wool
Dimensions: cm 300 x cm 160 (approximately 9,8 ft by 5,2 ft)
Country of origin: Kyrgyzstan
Large rug called Shyrdak made entirely by hand in Kyrgyzstan by artisan women who, following ancient techniques, keep this centuries-old tradition of the country alive.
The rug consists of two layers of wool felt. The top layer features the typical Kyrgyz decorative motifs in dark brown and dark red colors. The braided cord (jeek) around the designs is pale gray. The second layer of felt, which creates the base of the Shyrdak, is made of a stronger wool than the top layer. This wool gives a rigid shape to the carpet and has excellent insulating properties.
