Lecture/Show-and-Tell: Non-Turkmen Central Asian Rugs

Kelvin Webb, collector and co-treasurer, International Hajji Baba Society

Kelvin Webb will show and discuss the rugs of some non-Turkmen Central Asian cultures: the Karakalpak, Kyrgyz, and Uzbek. These rugs are handsome and distinctive, and bear some superficial resemblance to Turkmen and Belouch rugs in their somber colors and motifs.

Rug and Textile Appreciation Mornings bring together textile experts and enthusiasts for a thematic show and tell of personal pieces. Free; no reservations required.
