Sagirak — roof ring of the yurt

Different Turkic peoples had their own pattern of sagirak. This type of sagirak is typical for the South-West Bashkorts.

Uk — roof sticks


Bent lower part of the Uk makes the yurt more firm and gives stability to the roof even without holding columns like in Mongolian yurts. Thanks to that form of the Uk Bashkort yurt becomes higher and more spacious.













100% woolen felt with 3 to 8 mm thickness.












Bashkor — top circle decoration of the yurt


“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.
