Topiq Yurt

Turkey

Yurst of Turkey


The yurt is no longer used in Turkey, but one exists in the Archaeological Museum in Istanbul. What is particularly interesting is the range of carpets, cloths and hand made items in the yurt. These are bacoming increasingly rare as the items that the nomads do make have a much higher value on the international market, so are sold to traders and tourists. Most nomads make do with cheaper imported goods.
