Rug Morning Session at The Textile Museum
with Saul Barodofsky - Part 2

Continued from page 4

Number (17) was an embroidered Karakalpak woman's head piece (or bashlik) with an attatched silk ikat cape edged with more embroidery.




The other side was better, I think, but I had to change film at this point and missed it.

This round Central Asian piece was a fairly young Uzbek saddle cover of appliqued felt. It was graphically attractive.




Saul advised anyone with felt pieces to actively protect them against moths. He uses a spray called SLA.

Saul prefaced the next piece by saying that in the old days in many countries, dress was quite precisely, village-specific. People could tell by looking at your dress whether you lived in their village or what village you were from. He then showed this very interesting "apron" which he said was part of the women's dress for a particular village, likely in Greece, since that is where it was purchased.
