                                                Flyer --> Expo April <-- Flyer

The carpets and kilims of the Baluch
are a small window
to a world of wonder.
Woven and knotted
by wandering herders
under the open sky
with their soft and silky wool
they are beautiful and timeless values.

                                             Flyer --> Expo November <-- Flyer

Between Oxus and Jaxartes - Amu Darja and Syr Darja – lie steppes, oases and deserts.
Boundlessly, nomads – Uzbeks, Turkmen and Kirghiz - stride across this wide and barren lebensraum.
They trade with each other along a network of the Silkroads.
Steppe cultures develop and express themselves in knotted carpets and kilims like flowers in the desert.

From this vast area I show selected peasant and village rugs and flatweaves from Uzbekistan, Turkestan and Kirghizstan.
