The doors to Sartirana Castle and the Sartirana Textile Show opened Thursday 13 September at 6 pm and the fair will continue until Sunday 16 September. Opening hours for the public are Friday 3 pm – 8 pm, Saturday 10 am – 11 pm and Sunday 10 am – 8 pm.
It was expected that the quality of exhibited antique rugs and textiles would be high and Jozan Magazine can confirm that this is indeed the case.
The Sartirana Textile Show is a very special fair because of it’s relaxed atmosphere and the location in a small town circa 100 km from Milano. Though carpet sale is the purpose many of the dealers also come here to meet collegues and have a good time sharing rug news, gossip and information about antique rug trade with each other and the visiting carpet collectors.
The opening day resulted in a lot of rug talk and some sales and it is expected that Saturday will be the most busy day during the show. Besides the dealers fair Sartirana Textile Show also includes a special exhibition of Aleppo kilims.
