ABOUT THIS FAIR:

The London Antique Rug & Textile Art Fair will open its ninth edition from 22-27 January 2019. The UK’s only fair dedicated to fine antique carpets, rugs and textiles, LARTA brings together 17 specialist dealers from across Britain and Europe. Offering a world of colour, texture and history, LARTA is an unbeatable source of traditional oriental carpets, vibrant tribal rugs, rugged kelims, delicately-coloured dhurries, the finest textiles from Europe and the Silk Road such as suzanis and embroidered silks, antique costume, and a host of associated works of art. Modernist twentieth century textiles can also be found, alongside a selection of bespoke contemporary designer carpets. Anyone thinking of buying a period rug or carpet would do well to start here for the widest possible choice.

The Organisers are delighted to announce two new participants in 2019: Meg Andrews Antique Costumes & Textiles (London), who brings rare, unusual and interesting pieces dating from the antique to mid-century modern, and London House Rugs (Yorkshire) with an extensive collection of antique rugs, carpets and runners. The Fair is pleased to welcome back past exhibitor Anthony Hazledine (Oxfordshire), a leading expert in kelims from Turkey, Persia and the Caucasus, Navajo weavings from North America, and antique oriental and European carpets.

They join regular exhibitors such as Carpet Restoration Studio (London) who repair, clean and restore rugs as well as offering antique Persian carpets, Galerie Arabesque (Stuttgart) specialists in Balouch and Turkoman rugs as well as Asian textiles, Marilyn Garrow (Suffolk) an expert in oriental and European embroideries, Joss Graham Gallery (London) with ethnographic textiles from Africa, India and Asia, Andy Lloyd (Bath) offering Tibetan rugs and mats amongst his varied stock, Brian Macdonald Antique Rugs (Gloucestershire) who also specialises in tribal dowry weavings, Aaron Nejad Gallery (London) with a special exhibition, Texotica, of Central Asian embroideries and textiles such as suzanis, silk ikats, brocaded coats and Turkoman rugs, Oriental Rug Shop (Sheffield) with Persian rugs and kelims, Owen Parry (Wales) who favours older, rarer works, Peta Smyth Antique Textiles (London) with early tapestries and export textiles, and Markus Voigt (Kent) with a huge choice of textiles from as far afield as South East Asia to the Americas.

WHY YOU SHOULD VISIT THIS FAIR:

LARTA is a one chance a year event for anyone in the market for a carpet, or with an interest in textile design and historic weavings. In addition to the Fair, the LARTA website offers an online selling platform featuring a wide range of items from exhibitors, which goes live on opening day.
Aaron Nejad, Organiser of LARTA, says: “Any decorating scheme can incorporate a textile, on the wall as a work of art, or to unify room colours in a beautiful multi-hued carpet.”

Popular purchases include corridor rugs and runners for the hall and landing, velvets and damasks for use in window and bed decorations, Uzbek suzanis for bedspreads or wall-hangings, and verdure tapestries which bring a softness and warmth to town or country homes.

Located on the Mezzanine of the Winter Decorative Antiques & Textiles Fair, LARTA is an exotic cornucopia that attracts interior decorators, private customers and textile aficionados looking for special pieces and practical furnishing items. Prices start from just a few hundred pounds, and the choice of floorcoverings is unparalleled, from small bedside rugs to large room-sized carpets.
