Nowhere is the openness of the Kazakh people expressed so vividly and fully as in the time-honored traditions and customs of hospitality and festive treats for guests-dastarkhan. It has long been a custom of the Kazakhs to treat a guest richly, to seat him in the most honorable place. It was considered shameful not to give a hand to a person in a difficult moment, not to do him good, not to let him spend the night, not to buy him.
One of the mandatory attributes of family life among the Kazakh people is a chest. It is used for storing blankets, bedding, and other household items and decorations.
Since ancient times, chests were made of wood and decorated with carvings with national ornaments.
Masters of LLP "Black" have studied traditional artistic techniques and based on the centuries-old experience of folk craftsmen, are engaged in the manufacture of exclusive chests of hard wood, decorated with Kazakh ornaments. This product will not only be a great decoration for the family Shanyrak, but also an indispensable household item.
"Besik" - the cradle, is considered a sacred relic of every family. In most cases, it is given to the grandson by relatives on the mother's line "Nagashy"! Besik is carefully stored in the house and passed from generation to generation.
Sometimes a son may be lucky enough to sleep in the cradle in which his father once slept. When the child is first placed in the cradle, the ceremony "besikke salu" ("laying in the cradle") is performed.
The right to carry out such a responsible mission is entrusted, as a rule, to a specially invited wise and respected grandmother who has numerous offspring.

TRADITIONS AND CUSTOMS
Astau is a native Kazakh wooden dish, a dish for serving beshbarmak, pilaf, meat, and the head of a mutton. The main advantage of ecological tabac is that in this dish beshbarmak does not cool down for longer, and the wood gives an elegant look to the festive table.
Previously, the Kazakhs had a custom: the head of the family, in which the baby will soon be born, went to the master and ordered him “Astau”. By the time the baby was born, the dishes should have been in the parents ‘ house. And years later, when a grown-up son or daughter created their own families, parents, along with a common dowry, gave their children these dishes. It was believed that it was charged with magical power that could protect the house and family of the heir from evil spirits and misfortunes.
TRADITIONS AND CUSTOMS
Hospitality – one of the most ancient and inviolable customs of the Kazakhs – konakasy-the guest’s rights to food and accommodation. A person who violated this custom could be brought before the court of elders and pay a considerable fine for violating it.
Thanks to this tradition, any person could easily travel across the steppe, knowing that they would be accepted everywhere, fed, made a bed, and looked after and looked after the horse. Konakasy was a mandatory rule for every Kazakh family, regardless of its welfare.
TRADITIONS AND CUSTOMS
The first Kumys
In the spring, when the Kazakhs went to Zhailau-a summer nomad, it was time for the first kumys. People sit around a large table and, with a wish of “Baylar cobeysyn!”, were treated to Mare’s milk. Then it was time for the celebration of the first kumys – kymyzmuryndyk, for which Mare’s milk was fermented for nine days, adding fresh milk to it. The celebration lasted several days. The right to try the first kumys always belonged to the oldest woman and only then the kumys was passed to the others.
