The Kyrgyz are a Turkic-Mongol people who live primarily in the mountainous regions of Central Asia, where their traditional livelihood was that of pastoral nomadism.
Carpets knotted by Kyrgyz people are relatively rare and until recently were often acknowledged under the general banner of Turkmen tribal groups. The field pattern features a repeated hooked diamond medallion motif similar to a Turkmen gul.
