Rug Morning Session at The Textile Museum
with Saul Barodofsky - Part 3

Continued from page 7

The last piece I have a photo of from Saul's rug morning presentation proper is a very colorful Azerbaijani salt bag in sumak.

Some folks had brought pieces for this session. Here is a young, but colorful asmalyk.

A friend of Saul's came with a bit of costume. Here (37) he is modeling a hat with lots of shells in its designs.

This final piece was a Central Asian felt applique hanging

There was applause, and the session broke up and I went forward to shake Saul's hand. He bowed deeply, touching his forehead to my hands, the theater still in control.

A good rug morning and one of the first of the "new collectors" sessions I've seen that actively gave useful advice to new collectors.

Good job, Saul.
