The Antique Rug & Textile Show
October 15-26, 2009 in San Francisco

Forty odd dealers of antique rugs and textiles will be gathering for an informal fair in San Francisco’s Marina District this fall. Though several renowned galleries will be attending the emphasis for dealer selection was dealer’s dealers, i.e. those dealers that find and supply the world’s best galleries with their material. The 40 participant purveyors are evenly divided between America and the rest of the world inclusive of Europe, Asia, and the Middle East. The variety, quality, and number (in excess of 2,000 items) of textiles and rugs that will be made available should mark this event as a destination of serious collectors.

San Francisco was selected as a venue at the request of the dealers. The sheer beauty of this city combined with the great cuisine, interesting variety of people, excellent museums and galleries, and mild weather provide the perfect venue. The peculiarity of San Francisco’s latitude and Mediterranean climate along with the proximity of the Japanese current produces the odd effect that October is traditionally the warmest and sunniest month of the year, so naturally October is the ideal time to be in San Francisco.

The organizers, Michael Craycraft and Jozan Magazine, are pleased to announce that Rupert Smith of Kathmandu, Nepal has organized an exhibition and book release featuring Tibetan saddle rugs. It is hoped that the prominent San Francisco galleries will supplement this occasion with exhibitions of their own. More on this later.

Michael Craycraft and Ivan Soenderholm
