Antique ethnographic Middle Eastern flatweaves are the focus of my gallery collection.  I hunt primarily for excellent 19th century textile art, including pieces for collectors with limited budgets. Within these parameters, I am selective: I want pieces with strong design, lustrous wools, beautiful clear colors and refined weaves. I want textile art that displays individuality and experimentation
