If you plan to be in Washington D.C. today, The Textile Museum is hosting a lunchtime talk in conjunction with the exhibition Timbuktu to Tibet: Rugs and Textiles of the Hajji Babas. Sumru Belger Krody, Associate Curator for Eastern Hemisphere Collections, will discuss how individual weavers conjured, copied and commercialized designs from the palace to the village market. The event is free and no reservations are required. So again, it's Thursday, February 19, from noon to 12:30 p.m.
Shown above, pieces from the exhibition. At top, a wool, knotted pile village rug from Turkey, 18th or 19th century. Last, a bridal veil from Central Asia, Tajikistan, 18th or 19th century. Both images by Don Tuttle Photography.
Since you asked, antique and vintage Turkish rugs are available at Allan Arthur. The example above is mid-20th-century.
