Yurts and Gers :
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” with 4 doors. For 5 of them, I made all the sewing: lining, felt, canvas, pyjama (outside cover), and urkgh (crown cover).
We left for Spain in 2003 and started living in our 5 wall (6 meters) ger. I saw another ger here, which was still rare, found the owner, a Mongolian woman. Then I 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.
Besides gers, I worked for and lived in “yurtas artesanales”. Here we introduced the “pyjama” as an extra cover over the roof which protects the canvas for strong sun and prolongs its lifespan and the “sombrero” which is hanging in the crown to prevent the direct sun from coming in through the crown. Besides keeping all the different layers from the roof and walls (lining, felt, canvas, outside cover) together with the ropes around the outside cover, a new pyjama gives the yurt a new fresh look.
After 18 years I am specialized in sewing and building up gers/yurts.
