Side exhibitions of Tibetan carpets and Peyron carpets
As usual Sartirana Textile Show includes two side exhibition and a lecture program. One exhibition, organized by Thomas Wild is on Tibetan carpets and the other, organized by Alberto Boralevi, is on the Peyron Carpets woven in Prato, near Florence at the beginning of the 20th century. The ancient Tibetan carpets om display are selected by Thomas Wild from an exhibition currently taking place at the Schloss Voigsberg Museum in Oelsnitz/Vogtl in Germany. The exhibition on the Peyron manufacture will present three rare examples of ‘Florentine Carpets’ made around 1910 with the patterns inspired by the early thirteenth-century marble inlaid floors of the Florence Baptistery and of the Basilica of San Miniato al Monte. The carpets have never been exhibited for the public before.
Tea Time Textile Talks
The lecture program, the so-called Tea-Time-Textile-Talks, includes the presentation of some recently published books. The two other lectures will refer to the side exhibitions. Ulrike Montigel and Thomas Wild will present the Tibetan carpets on display and the Tibetan Tantric symbolism in them and Alberto Boralevi will speak about The Lanificio Peyron and the “Mercatal” carpets.
