Collecting artifacts is not something that is motivated by one clear aim, and very often, it does not have a precise objective at all. Art is not nurtured by having a clear purpose: taste and personal preferences are the subtle, changeable elements that are at the heart of all choices made by collectors.

The sentiment moving us envelops all antique textile art artifacts, with a preference for carpets, tapestries, kilims, embroideries, and it touches every facet of the Gallery’s soul, our collection, our study centre, our conservation laboratory, and our publishing house. Sharing this feeling is our highest calling.
