The National Museum of Mongolia

One of the five domesticated animals of Mongolia is the two-humped camel, raised by herders of the steppes and Gobi desert. The saddle cushion - tohosh is primarily used for riding a camel and made from felt that is quilted with coloured cloth and fibres. In some places the felt is covered with hide and leather. In recent times tohosh are being made from sheep’s wool which is coloured and woven to produce the saddles and embroidered with different kinds of patterns & designs. Most of the saddles include stirrups attached with a leather strap.
