This handmade wool rug is from Kyrgyzstan. The name "Tribe" invokes a guardian figure; traditionally, Kyrgyz nomads believe in a host of spirits that provide protection throughout life. Some of these mystical figures appear in the shapes of this shyrdak. Understated colors and an intricate, abstract pattern make The Tribe Rug a perfect match for ultramodern interiors or bright design elements. These sturdy pieces of art would serve well as kids playroom rugs.

Because our shyrdaks are handmade, yours may vary slightly from the ones pictured.
Shyrdaks are extremely durable, especially if they are properly cared for.
Ordinary dirt and debris may be removed by shaking the rug outdoors. Vacuum cleaning should be done on a low setting, but the brush attachment should not make contact with the rug itself.
If drinks are spilled or pet accidents occur on the carpet, absorb the liquid with a dry cloth first. Then, use warm soapy water to remove the stain. It works great to place a bowl under the rug where the spot occurred and rinse the soapy water through the rug with clean water into the bowl below.
Periodic cleaning by a professional with experience in cleaning felt rugs is recommended.
