Guide to Kyrgyz Rugs and Textiles

Kyrgyz, and also Kirghiz, Kara-Kirgiz, or Kirgiz

The Kirghiz are Western Turks of the Aralo-Caspian group. The Kyrgyz are primarily in Kyrgyzstan but are also found in Afghanistan, China, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, Turkey, and Uzbekistan. They are closely related to the Karakalpak of Uzbekistan, the Kazakh of Kazakhstan and the Nogai of the Northern Caucasus, Kazakhstan, and Uzbekistan. They divide into two main groups; the Northern Kirghiz, Southern Kirghiz.

A picture of yours of two Kyrgyz women spinning

Barry--Be my guest. You can do the credit as Copyright 1996 Daniel C. Waugh. Whether you want to add "used with permission" or whatever is up to you. Also, if there is any place to put in a link to Silk Road Seattle ( www.uwch.org/silkroad ) we are always happy to have such. You got it from a different of my web pages, but the Silk Road Seattle (which also includes it somewhere, I believe) is the main Central Asia-related site I am maintaining and expanding these days and is a very good resource, I think. Let me know the web addresses of some of the projects you are doing. Dan Waugh
