The Corfu Museum of Asian Art in Greece hosts an exhibition ‘Wandering Nomads in Central Asia – the Frank Martin Diehr Collection’ through 8 October 2023.

‘The rug world has been quite busy with Baluch rugs recently – to my delight’ says Frank Diehr to Jozan Magazine.

The exhibition focuses on saddle bags of the Baluch nomads of Central Asia and on neighboring tribes weaving in the Baluch tradition. The exhibition presents 28 saddle bags woven by nomads in the second half of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century.
