“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.
