91st Meeting of Teppichfreunde

4thMarch 2018

Ladies and Gentlemen,
Dear Teppichfreunde,

The programme of our meeting on the 5th November 2017 had to be changed at short notice because the talk on sleeping rugs of the Aimaq tribes had to be postponed to our upcoming meeting. The tiny exhibition of Yastik cushion fronts was decorated near the entrance to the hall and the collector, our friend and member Wolfgang Ritter gave more information in a separate talk. Karl-Michael Plötze spoke in place of Wolfgang Windau on design of Anatolian prayer kilims and at the end of the mornings presentations on Seccade and SAF of Azerbaijan silk embroideries exhibited in the Museum of Art at Baku during the 5th Symposium in October 2017. I myself have held a talk on a special group of particularly fine sumakh khordjin from Azerbaijan. Ms. Müller-Radloff, Dresden was some weeks earlier in Baku and trained the ladies of the newly built Carpet Museum in appropriate restoration and conservation methods. The museum building has the funny shape of a rolled up carpet.

We are delighted that Ms. Ulla ther, Munich will speak at the next meeting on Anatolian textiles for dowry. Wolfgang Windau presents his postponed lecture on the sleeping rugs and our long time member Achim Boldt will explain wich of his collected pieces he likes most.

May I now invite you to the
