Souvenirs from felt, the Mongolian cashmere, wool
The Mongolian cashmere and wool are one of the best in the world. The first people who learned how to apply wool and how to drag felt were cattle-farmers of Central Asia, Mongolia, Tibet, Altai and other steppe and mountain areas. At the moment the most ancient products from felt are found in barrows of Mountain Altai, they count more than 3000 years. The main use of the felt remains invariable still now a days, practically in all Asia it is applied for facing of yurtas. Yurtas still are an optimum type of the figurative dwelling for severe mountain and steppe climate. But production of yurtas is not the unique use of felt. Many clothes, home decoration (carpets, pillows, laying, etc.) are made from felt, and for equestrians and shepherds felt is simply irreplaceable. All body cloths, many saddles, shabracks and archimaks (special marching bags) are made as in old times of this material. In the Middle Ages the warriors used felt for a liner under an armor and as separate elements of equipment. Every one knows about felt hats which don't get out of fashion since modern times. Souvenirs from felt and wool gain the popularity, pictures and a panel in which material of different flowers is used are also interesting.
