Shirdak’s new arrivals include premium felt Shyrdak rugs, in vibrant red and orange, a favourite colour combination at the Shirdak Gallery. Each rug is handmade in Kyrgyzstan using ancient traditional methods.
The pure sheeps wool is processed by hand – going through cycles of washing, then beating, rolling and finally dyed before it becomes felt fabric. The patterns of the Shyrdak rugs are made by many contrasting layers and then they get sewn together to create beautiful repetitive motifs inspired by the landscape of Central Asia.
You can also find online the complete Shyrdak rugs collection from Shirdak, with worldwide shipping.
The Shirdak Silk Road Store in Amsterdam is located on Prinsengracht 192, Amsterdam.
