1. Djulkyr Uzbekistan

Djulkyr Uzbeistan red blue yellow coloured

Djulkyr, also known as ‘bearskins’, are made by Uzbeks. They are long piled, coarsely knotted weavings that are considered by many to be the archetypal pile rug imitating animal pelts and developed by the sheep-herding nomads of Central Asia. Monochromatic strips were dyed, post the weaving process, then sewn together. This example uses just the three primary colours red, blue and yellow.
