Description Julkhyr, translated by Moshkova as
bearskin, describes the long, dense
pile of these Central Asian rugs. They served a
variety of functions such as sleeping rugs,
covers or floor carpets. They were strictly
utilitarian and were woven for personal rather
than commercial use. This example has all natural
dyes and includes yak wool in both the foundation
and areas of the ground pile. According to
current research, julkhyrs were woven by Uzbeks,
Turkmen-Uzbeks and Arabs.
Condition: Very good. Full pile. There are
isolated areas of repiling.
