Karma is not a traditional fair but a handful of antique rug dealers, all selling their antique pieces in the same building. This years Karma takes places 1-4 April 2011 at 202 Kensington Church Street, near to Notting Hill Gate and Portobello Road. Opening hours are 11 am – 9.30 pm all days.
“It is kind of hotel where each of us has a room where to live, to sleep, to eat and to show our textile treasures. Every evening at 7:30 we have a lecture and some refreshements and drinks at the same time. Friday I spoke about the so-called Transylvanian Rugs and Saturday Koos De Jong, a well known Chinese and Tibetan Rugs Collector, talked about his Collection of Saddle rugs” said Alberto Boralevi, to Jozan Magazine.
“This collection”, he continued, “will also be shown in Sartirana 14-18 September, as a part of the Textile Show.
“Karmas first day was not too busy but with the start of the auctions Sunday the number of visitors rose up and the enthusiasm increased” said Sarah Haberkern to Jozan Magazine.
