All shyrdak felt rugs are made to order. We do not keep any in stock because we have found that people usually have very individual requirements for colours, designs and sizes. You can see the typical range available below.

The rugs are hand-crafted with love by women's cooperatives in the Tien Shan mountains of Kyrgyzstan. Each rug is a unique work of art, reflecting the natural and spiritual environment of its maker and is a source of great pride.

It takes several women about 6-8 weeks to make a rug and, with transportation time added in, it can take up to 10-12 weeks between order and delivery. In winter, the mountain villages may be cut off by snow so communications and transport are not as swift as in Europe or the USA.

Prices start at GBP 300 (USD 500) and go up to GBP 1750 (USD 3000) depending on size and complexity of design. All prices shown include shipping, which is expensive because the rugs are heavy and bulky to transport.

These rugs are for those who appreciate rare and beautiful works of art and are not in a hurry.

If you want cheap floor coverings immediately it is best for you to look elsewhere.
