Kyrgyz embroideries  Our Kyrgyz embroideries have been essentially collected in the Altai province of North-Western Mongolia, populated by Kyrgiz and Kazakh nomadic tribes. The majority of them are tent (yurt or ger in Mongolian) hangings or tush kiyiz (Kyrgyz) or tus kiiz (Kazakh). They were used during the wedding ceremonies and later hang along the back wall, facing the entrance  (tor, the place of honor) of the yurt. They were deliberately left unfinished at the bottom to ensure that the marriage would continue to bring unbounded happiness.  (See Meller2013)
