Sartirana Textile Show, 2013

The 9th annual Sartirana Textile Show will take place from 19-22 September 2013 at Sartirana Castle in Lomellina, near Milan, Italy.  More than fifty dealers, national and international, will be participating in one of the largest ever such shows, with a programme that includes a cultural exhibition and a lecture programme.

Under the aegis of the scholarly Florentine dealer and fair impresario Alberto Boralevi, the Sartirana Textile Show presents a rare opportunity for exhibitors and experts from Italy, Europe and the Middle East to converge in one place. The aim of the event is to promote antique textiles as objects of art that have social and cultural value, within an agreeable setting in the Italian autumn.

This year the special exhibition will be dedicated to tribal pouches and saddlebags, along with folk costumes from around the world. There is also a special presentation of Afghan War rugs by the Italian NGO “Calpesta di Guerra”.  In addition, at 17:00 on Friday and Saturday, business will be put on hold for the Textile Tea Time Talks, an informal chat about various in-depth topics, targeted at all guests to the show.
