A talk by Ian and Jenifer Rutherford
Ian and Jeni lived for several years in Jerusalem from the late 1990's. After the Oslo Accord Ian managed a branch of an international bank in East Jerusalem; the bank having inherited several West Bank branches of the Ottoman Bank which closed in 1967.
Their talk will take us through the historical and regional variations of pattern, material technique and changes in fashion from the late 1900 onwards. Each item has a history and they will explain their journey as collectors. They are bringing textiles and costume to show us.
