Join Cornucopia at the International Conference on Oriental Carpets Dealers Fair Stockholm 16-19 June 2011

Next month Cornucopia will be at a conference dedicated to objects at the top of many connoisseurs of Turkey's list of favourite things, carpets. The 12th International Conference on Oriental Carpets is in Stockholm this time round and will spoil attendees with an array of lectures, dealers' fairs and exhibitions. The Royal Armoury exhibits Transylvanian rugs, a pair of Polonaise rugs from the Skokloster Castle, a Polonaise rug from the Hallwyl Museum, fabulous Oriental arms and armour as well as Queen Kristina’s Safavid velvet coat. It will be tough to top the last conference, which was held in Istanbul in 2007 (see issue 37), but this looks to be a fantastic week for textiles-lovers.

One day entry to the Dealers Fair only, 125 SEK (US$20/Euro14/GBP12) Register online: http://www.icoc2011stockholm.se/welcome.asp
