Until the Russians invaded Turkmenistan in the late nineteenth century, the power and status of the tribal Turkmen peoples was a major force in Central Asia. They were renowned for their intricately patterned carpets and rugs, the distinctive, octagonal tribal crests, and deep, natural dyes of red, yellow, pomegranate and indigo. Brian MacDonald will tour the Fair and pick out the best examples of these sought-after weavings on dealers’ stands.

Meet in the Mezzanine café at 10.30am Saturday 26 January 2019 to set off at 11am.
