In ancient times, carpets, flooring, clothing, and hats were made of wool. Nowadays needlewomen are fond of creating decorative items, toys, jewelry, and souvenirs from felt. In the process of felting, wool fibers get tangled and form a dense lump, which takes the desired shape in the hands of fellers. The necessary tools for felting are needles in different shapes. When the needle sticks into the wool, the notches in the lower part of it catch the fibers and push them into the lower layers, whereby entanglement occurs.
Our product was made by artisans from Kyrgyzstan, for whom in ancient times felt was the only known type of textile and accompanied a person all his life. People slept on felt, dressed in felt clothes, and covered horses with felt blankets. Felt protected enemy arrows from evil spirits, saved from heat and cold. And now, felt is of great importance for Kyrgyz people.
