Hali Magazine Review of Our Recent ‘Eastern Gems’ Antique Textiles Exhibition

Our successful ‘Eastern Gems’ antique textile, rug, carpet and tapestry exhibition at the beginning of April was featured in the highly respected industry-standard Hali magazine on 8th April

From the Hali website:

There was a hectic week of activities for the rug and textile community in London over the Islamic Week as two specialist antique fairs and two high end dealer shows vied for people’s attention…

(details about inaugural London Antique Rug and Textile Art Fair, and KARMA omitted)

…Running alongside these collective events was ‘Eastern Gems’ at Zadah’s gallery at 4 Marylebone Street (30 March – 8 April), which showed an eclectic variety of material on offer ranging from Coptic textile fragments and Flemish tapestries through Safavid carpets and later tribal and village rugs, to Indian embroideries and silk ikats from Southeast Asia, not to mention a surprising collection of Malian arkilla and other African cloths, as well as some top quality Ottoman embroideries.
