Sartirana Textile Show 13-16 September 2012 looks promising and the rugs and textiles on display seem, as usual for STS, to be of high standard. The reduced number of exhibitors this year will probably further improve quality.
Serkan Sari, Karlsruhe, will show an interesting 19th century Beshir Ensi, a very old 17/18th century Anatolian Konya and a 19th century Nurati Suzani. Mohammad Tehrani, Hamburg, will showcase an unusual 19th century Kazak rug, probably a Genje. David Sorgato will show a very special Ningxia throne back cover from circa 1840 and an early 16th century Italian silk and gold velvet.
