Early 20th Century Red and Blue Kyrgyz Felt Rug

$3,200

About

This truly tribal antique felt represents one of the oldest crafts practiced by man since the domestication of sheep and one vital to life on the often harsh Eurasian steppe. Central Asian felt carpets are made by sewing colorful reciprocal felt forms onto a felt foundation. This technique is known by the Kyrgyz as “shyrdak.” In true nomad style and sensibility, artistic thought and effort are exerted in making a utilitarian domestic object. Felts such as this one were used to insulate the yurt and generally lasted for about ten years until they were recycled. This piece represents a rare and fortunate survival of an older antique example.
