Textile Collections in Russia

HALI TOUR September 18–26, 2020

An aim of any HALI Tour is to show visitors the best and most important rugs and textiles in the world. Therefore this new tour to Russia should come as no surprise, since its museums are home to unparalleled riches. The unique character of these collections allied with special curatorial tours, access to museum reserves and visits to private collections will make this one of our most exciting tours to date.

In September 2020, in association with Martin Randall Travel, HALI Tours will offer the opportunity to gain unprecedented access to textile collections in Russia during the White Nights festival. The focus is on its two great capitals, St Petersburg and Moscow, whose museums are of interest not only in terms of the importance and quality of their world-class holdings, but also due to the ways in which these vast collections have been assembled, thereby providing insights into Russian history and culture.

This tour has been re-scheduled from June 2020. Please email for further information.
