    Bashkor — top circle decoration of the yurt

    bashkor

    “Bashkor” – is literally translated from the Bashkort language as “the main knot”. It is a main connection of the yurt holding the roof sticks all together. Having the holding function it is also a decoration of the yurt. Initially it was a very strong rope made of horse tail hair. Over the years Bashkor has been developed into a wide woven decorative ribbon.
