Travel Theme: Red – Decorative Arts in Kyrgyzstan
For this week’s travel theme of red, I chose to focus on the decorative arts in Kyrgyzstan. A lot of their creative work is done through weaving and patch work quilts using wool. We visited a family living in the suburbs of Bishkek and Shereen shared the work that she and her mother had finished.
The inside of yurts are also decorated with woven strips and hangings – with the main color also being red.
This was the yurt my daughter and I slept in when visiting Song Kul.
