The fourth annual London Antique Rug and Textile Art Fair will take place 3-6 April 2014. This year the fair also goes global with a launch of a virtual fair.
‘The LARTA Fair was created to be the UK’s major focal point for international collectors of rugs and textiles. Whilst many make the pilgrimage each year to view and buy in person from our exhibitors, we wanted to broaden our sales opportunities to a global level. By creating a virtual fair, which can be viewed at our website whilst the real-life event takes place, we can now invite all of our customers, wherever they are in the world, to see items for sale at any time of day or night – but with the excitement and anticipation that comes with a collective display such as a fair’ said the organizer Aaron Nejad to Jozan Magazine.
Cornucopia Magazine has dropped out of LARTA, and has been replaced by Carpet Collector. This means that the updated exhibitor list includes James Cohen, Carpet Collector, Galerie Arabesque, Gallery Nomad, Joss Graham Gallery, Hali Magazine, Andy Lloyd, Aaron Nejad, Ornamentum, Owen Parry, Seneh Carpets and Markus Voigt Textiles.
