For centuries this material has been used in Kyrgyzstan. Kyrgyz nomads used it, and are still using it today! It was used to insulate and decorate their yurts with the ‘shirdaks’, keeping these moveable homes warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
Felt is durable, natural, breathable and a good insulating material. It does not burn, it is elastic, sound dampening and colorfast. And, last but not least, water and dirt repellent thanks to its natural oils!
A product which therefore has shown its use since ancient times, but also has applications for today!
SiRo makes use of hand- as machinemade felt, both however hand-dyed by local women.
