NYICS Antique Pavilion to debut.
Next month, the New York International Carpet Show will debut the Antique Pavilion, an area at the show dedicated to antique handmade carpets.
Due to increased interest from potential exhibitors, NYICS doubled the original number of exhibitors it has planned for a total of 30.
"We've been diligently building NYICS into a destination of meticulous craft, both new and antique," said Murtaza Ahmadi, president, NYICS, which is scheduled to run here Sept. 11-13. "My mission for NYICS continues to be creating a platform worthy of telling our industry's incredibly beautiful and complex story of the process behind the product. This is what will help sustain our carpet designers and craftsmen who are struggling to compete in a world of increasing 'massification.'"
At presstime, there were 16 exhibitors slated for the pavilion: Anatolian Picker, Andy Lloyd, Caravanserai, Collins Gallery, Peter Pap, James Cohen, Daniel Goodman, David Sorgato, DeWitt MallAry, Emir Galerie des Arts Textiles, Fazli Solak, Fred Hazin, Aydin Oriental Carpets, Owen Parry, Tyfik Recai Yaroglu and Yurok Rug Gallery.
