Decorative Arts And Crafts Of The Kazakh. Felting Art. Among varieties of Kazakh folk arts and crafts felting occupies a prominent position. The Kazakh culture is the direct heir of nomad traditions that evolved in the prairies for almost three thousand years. The art of koshmovalyanie [felting] of the Kazakh relates to household crafts and, at the same time, to artistic crafts as felt cloths were exported to international markets. Felting as the main external cover for yurt carcass. Yurts of wealthy people were usually covered with white felt. Felt articles, due to quantitative volume, played the leading role in traditional everyday life of the Kazakh people. Usually, felt production involved mutual help of female relatives, neighbors and friends. There was an interesting ritual connected to fluffing of colored wool. The hostess would hide a piece of fabric, tied in a knot, in wool beforehand. During wool whipping, this fabric knot would cling to a rod of one of the women, who, as it was considered, received the grace. During wool fluffing and preparing tekemet [carpet], the hostess could give as a gift a wisp of colored wool to an unexpected female visitor with the wish to make a similar tekemet for her kids. In gratitude, the guest had to invite all the crafts women for supper or bring a meat treat, because she got from the hostess well wishing believed to be magical. The Kazakh considered the white color sacred. A great symbolic role was assigned to dairy products that the Kazakhs called with one word “aq”, meaning “white”. The white color stood for pristine purity, innocence, justice, the good, and also signified high social status. So, for example elevating the elected khan on a white koshma was akin to inauguration in the old times.
