Side Exhibitions 2016 Tea Time Textile Talks


After eight years, Turkmen are Back in Sartirana Textile Show with a major exhibition of top pieces (mostly main carpets) from Italian collections. Stars of the show will be some of the pieces illustrated and described in the recently published book by Jürg Rageth: “ Turkmen Carpets. A New Perspective”.

On September 10th an exhibition of various carpets from that book will be opened at Rippon Boswell in Wiesbaden together with a one day Symposium. The Sartirana Exhibition will be opened instead on September 14th giving visitors and Turkomaniacs coming from overseas the unique opportunity of attending both events and viewing two important shows in the same week. One of the Tea-Time-Textile-Talks, the traditional Sartirana’s Short Lectures will be devoted to Turkmen Carpets in Italy, both in private collections and Museums as well as to a presentation of the book and the accompanying exhibition.

The Exhibition will present examples from Italian Collections including the extraordinary 17th Century Yomut Main Carpet belonging to Edoardo Concaro and published as no. 101 (p.216/17) in Raget’s book. Other examples from the book include a late 18th c. Salor Torba or hanging with Kejebe/darvaza design (no.5, p. 24) now with David Sorgato and few others. Besides them some important and still unpublished examples will be shown, including an unusual and rare “C Gül” Yomut, a beautiful and large Ersari Main Carpet with so-called ‘snakes’ or ‘cloudband’ pattern and a group of classical Ensis, including the rarest Arabachi and Chodor types.

The exhibition will be held in the renovated areas at ground floor of “La Pila”, the seventeenth-century rice mill, where the Sartirana Textile Show is traditionally organized.
