If you love rugs like we do, you must visit the Textile Museum of Canada, celebrating their 40th anniversary this year. Experience their latest exhibit called “From Ashgabat to Istanbul: Oriental Rugs from Canadian Collections”, displaying beautiful antique rugs, tent bands, horse and camel decorations and bags from Central and West Asia.
Curator Natalia Nekrassova and her team have done a fantastic job piecing together a world class collection of rare pieces from private Canadian collectors and museums.
Natalia and her team have also assembled a book showcasing the rugs in the exhibit, which can be purchased at the museum.
If you’ve never been to the Textile Museum of Canada, this is the perfect exhibit to kick off what could be many visits in the future. It runs until April 19th, 2015.

We are proud sponsors of this exhibit and happy to support rug interest in Toronto and beyond.
