After our second journey to Mongolia in 2000, I started to work with gers. I was lucky to make my ger with Nooitmeerhaast at ADM. With a team of about 6 people we made 6 different gers under which the “Palace” with carved wood decorations and the “Castle” whit 4 doors. For 5 of them I made all the sewing : lining, felt , canvas , pyjama (outside cover) , and urg (crown cover).
We left for Spain in 2003 and started living in our 5 wall (6 meter) ger. I saw another ger here, which were still rare, found the owner, Mongolian woman and slowly started a little shop from which I was selling gers new and second hand. Helping people out who needed new covers, building up gers (that slowly popped up). and restore neglected Mongolian gers, I learned a lot about different yurts in different places.
