Köökör is a type of leather container that preserves the ancient Kyrgyz national drink. It was used to keep kymyz. To make it, the craftsmen made the skins of cows and camels and engraved the national symbol on the outside. It is also one of the most beautiful of these leather containers.

There are regional differences in the capture of kookor. For example, it would shave the skin of a freshly sheared cow and put it in a pot.

After three or four days, it will be very soft. After removing it from the pot, it is cut and sewn on that soft. It is filled with sand, and when it swells, it is decorated with a broken horn picture. The skin dries on the sand inside.

Camel skin is thick. After defrosting, it is usually shoveled. It sews the outer part of the skin, which is cut into bruises, separately, and the inner part of the flesh with a separate seam. After giving it a bluish texture, they put soil, sand, and often sand-mixed soil into the skin.

Craftsmen make different sizes of kookors. The largest is filled with six to eight liters of liquid, and the smallest with one and a half liters. Kookors are made in different shapes and decorated with different ornaments. The carvings or ornaments on it are mainly "curved", "horn", "dream", "half dream".

Most kookors have a narrow mouth, a long neck, a broad base, flat shoulders and shoulders. Jewelers embroidered silver, copper, bronze, and tin on the corners, shoulders, and neck of the kookor.

The fact that the kookor must be at the edge of the table and poured kymyz from it to the guests, it was a testament to the politeness and kindness of our people. It is also necessary to smoke once or twice a year, because it always maintains a strong condition. Today, kookors are used by our contemporaries as keychains and souvenirs.

One of the traditional headwear of the Kyrgyz men from ancient time. It is an indispensable part of the Kyrgyz winter headwear. It is a round headwear, usually made of marmots, lynxes, foxes, and beavers. Unlike other head wears, it is large in size.

The making of Tebetey.

The four fields of Tebetey are divided into four parts. The top is sewn with wool from not, velvet, sukno and other thick fabrics. The lower part of the steppe faces outwards and is covered with broad fur, mostly by foxes, and by the richest Kyrgyz, by thirsty, beaver fur.

According to fur, headwear’s are called fox tebetey, beaver tebetey, and gopher tebetey. The exterior of the Tebetey is decorated with different fabrics depending on the age and social status. For example, black and brown outerwear was suitable for the elderly, while light-colored outerwear such as green and blue was suitable for young people.

Let us briefly consider the Tebetey, who define wealth and power. A tebetey made of sheepskin was said to be worn, but it was worn by ordinary people in the cold of winter. But the respect of the common people, who were limited by their own economy, was like a blanket.

If the person has about 300 domestic animals, which had little prestige in the village, were worn by the virgins as foxes. And in every village it was possible to wear a thirsty tebetey to the experts and dignitaries. People who ruled in one region and had other prestige and power in other tribes wore beaver tebetey, but all of them were covered with black.

Among the Kyrgyz, the history of the people confirms that only a person who had reached the level of a khanate was allowed to wear a red cap, and Tebetey was called "Kyzyl Chok".

The Tebetey was worn not only by men but also by unmarried girls.

The outside of the girls' tebetey is lined with red manats and velvet fabrics, and an owl's wing is attached to the top of the tebetey to protect the girls from eye contact. Some simply sewed long hair. Sometimes it is decorated with jewelry such as beads and pearls. The girls' tebetey field was also cut higher. Men's tebeteys are decorated with a ball of charcoal. It is now widespread throughout Kyrgyzstan.

The first information about the clothes of the ancient Kyrgyz can be found in Chinese sources dating back to the Tang Dynasty. According to the Tan-Shu dynastic inscriptions, Kyrgyz chiefs “wear a headwear-“kunduz tebetei” in winter and a gold-rimmed kalpak in summer. The rest wear felt hats-kalpak. These features of the Kyrgyz people were mainly preserved until the beginning of the 20th century.

The oldest men's headwear is a white felt kalpak. There are 2 types of it among our people. The top of the 1st kalpak has a small slit, and the 2nd kalpak has a slit. In the field of the second type of kalpak, black cloth is usually printed with velvet or leather. The first type is embroidered.

Kalpak is a folk kalpak that symbolizes Ala-Too. In making it, the wool is finely ground and beaten. After drying and re-baking the fermented wool, the chalk is sown over and over again, pressed again and again, and the felt is hardened.

The Kyrgyz kalpak is a comfortable light kalpak that protects from the sun in the heat and from the cold in the cold. However, the structures of the kalpak, each color and each pattern have a different meaning.

The kalpak is made up of 4 matching fields. Together, the 4 fields represent Ala-Too, where the Kyrgyz people have lived for a long time. Therefore, it gives a symbol of our homeland. The kalpak is made of white felt, which symbolizes its holiness and purity. The kalpak is an ancient headwear. The person who wears it is rooted in the history of their ancestors and is closely connected with the traditions and culture of their people. This is the sanctity of the headwear-kalpak.
