The ongoing Sartirana Textile Show includes an important, and sophisticated mounted, special educational exhibition of Chinese, Inner Mongolian and Tibetan saddle rugs from the de Jong and de Rode Collection.
“My mission with my study and this exhibition is to show rugs as a form of art, objects that should be dealt with respect and not considered just as floor covering.” said Koos De Jong to Jozan Magazine.
The result of Koos de Jong’s study will be published in the next issue of Hali and later in a book.
Sartirana Textile Show runs through Sunday 18 September and opening hours Saturday are 10.00 – 23.00. Opening hours Sunday are 10.00 – 20.00.
