ORIENTAL RUG AND TEXTILE SOCIETY OF GREAT BRITAIN

The Oriental Rug & Textile Society of Great Britain was established in 1977 to encourage enthusiasm and interest in carpets and textiles of Asia and the Middle East. The Society is now concerned with carpets and textiles of the whole world. 

 

We aim to advance understanding of the processes of making carpets and textiles, and promote knowledge of the traditional centres of weaving through specialist talks and in the pages of our journal.

The Society organises visits to museums, auction houses and private collections. Curators have always been exceptionally generous with their time and expertise, showing us treasures not normally seen by the public. 

 

Our overseas visits have included trips to Albania, Turkey, Romania, Poland, Hungary, Germany, Morocco, France, Armenia, Egypt, India, Iran and, most recently, Kyrgyzstan.

Do join us!
