kyrall (Turkish for "king"). Shyrdak Rug. Shyrdak or felt art, is an age-old tradition of the nomadic Kyrgyz people. Part mosaic, part quilt, the interlocking patterns and distinctive borders of shyrdak combine to create a rich tapestry. The designs incorporate images of sacred myths and symbols, with colors reflecting the balance in nature and the cyclical rhythm of the nomad’s world. // text from lavivahomes @ http://www.lavivahome.com/shyrdak/shyrdak-rugs.html?___SID=U
