The International Conference on Oriental Carpets 19-22 April 2007 in Istanbul included visits to several highly interesting exhibitions and receptions as a part of the program. On Friday evening, April 20th, the Museum of Turkish and Islamic Art (Turk Islam Eserleri Muzesi) held an reception and exhibition for the ICOC participants. The reception was very cheerful and old friends were found at the reception and new acquaintances were made. Well – the highlight was of course the Museum’s excellent collection of more than 100 Anatolian carpets and fragments – some of them more than 700 years old.
