I ♥ Central Asia

Tekemet and Ala Kiiz

Tekemet is a felt rug like Syrmaq and Shyrdak but made in a different way.
To create this type of carpet, the wool is spread on a plant called Shy which is very reminiscent of bamboo.  
The decorations are created directly and then everything is pressed several times. They are not very precise rugs like the others but on the one hand they seem more primordial, I find them wonderful. Throughout Central Asia they are presented with different colors and ornaments.
A variant of the Tekemet is the Oyuly Tekemet, similar but to hang on the wall. The first, however, were carpets used for the floor in yurts.
