The Nomadic people of the Tien Shan Mountains in Kyrgyzstan, have fashioned stunning woolen rugs called Shyrdaks, for over two thousand years,
The Shyrdak rugs are made by tribal women, on a sturdy felt base stitched with geometric patterns.
Every rug takes a skilled cutter and her team between ten and twenty days to make.
Felt is the first business to import these beautiful works of art to the UK from Kyrgyzstan.
The New white on white collection:
- The latest Felt collection of especially custom-made Shyrdak â€˜white on whiteâ€™ rugs and cushions, produce a fresh classic look, which looks completely at home in traditional or contemporary interiors.
- The decorative â€˜white-on-whiteâ€™ pieces encompass all of the interest and texture of the braided and stitched felt, without the different colours characteristic of Shyrdaks, but allow the lush elegance of pure white new wool to speak for itself.
- Every rug is a real work of art that is as practical and durable as it is pleasing to the eye.
