Old Wool in a New Rug

Recently I have heard of new rugs made from old wool. I tended to discount it and I examine one of those rugs here. But I may have been hasty because I was assuming that it was like the high-end fakes were they use old Kilim wool to create very authentic looking copies. Then I got to thinking of the Hazara gloves I used to see in DC made from unraveled used clothing. Just because it is recycled wool does not automatically mean old kilims it could be from old sweaters. After all many clothes that fail to sell in places like Good Will end up shipped to Afghanistan.

Wool and Cotton wefts in a Village Hamadan Rug

Not a great video. I actually threw most of it away but the rug is interesting and Thea Sand is great. I will work on better videography.

Stephen "Dusty" Roberts of www.rugbadger.com tipped me off to a very cool idea. Dave Pearson has installed a webcam at his carpet cleaning plant: http://www.pearsoncarpetcare.com/Default.aspx?tabid=2244

Bijar Rugs Attribution Clues - Salt and Pepper Knots

I spotted this technique in pictures of old Bijar rugs. Then years ago I saw a RTAM presentation at the Textile Museum by Doug and Helen Stock of D. B. Stock Antique Persian Carpets in Wellesley Massachusetts where they showed a rug with this technique of knotting. That must have been almost 10 years ago so when I saw this rug I wanted to document it.

Blocking a Carpet

Not all carpets are perfectly square. To square up a rug there is a process called blocking. Thea Sand was kind enough to explain the process to me.

Thea Sand is a a Restoration Industry Association Certified Rug Specialist, is President of Emmanuel’s Rug and Upholstery Cleaners, and a fourth-generation expert in cleaning, repair, and restoration. Emmanuel’s, which was founded by Thea’s great-grandfather in 1907, has been continuously family-owned and operated in Seattle, WA for over 100 years. An IICRC Senior Floor Covering Inspector, expert witness, appraiser and floor covering consultant since 1995, Thea is currently President of the Carpet Cleaners Institute of the Northwest and a board member of the National Institute of Rug Cleaners (NIRC). She is membership secretary for the Armenian Rug Society, a member of the San Francisco Bay Area Oriental Rug Society and the Seattle Textile and Rug Society.

Rugs after the winter floods in Washington State

A small note about the flood. Floods happen and outside of weather there is no cause to blame. This flood was an exception. The Army Corp of Engineers deliberately scheduled a dam release apparently not bothering to notice the already high water. It would be almost laughable except that these rugs hurt real people. Business is tough enough today without this.

A little known secret of SpongoBongo is that it has just under 8 million pages. Last year I gave up hope that Google would ever index all of it in my life time. But in my stats I noticed in January Googlebot; 187435 visits as of 07 Jan 2009 - 03:45 AM. Wow! So I checked with Google and found their December data. When I gave up it was averaging a thousand pages a day but now it is accelerating.

My Best Christmas Ever!

My assistant producer Mickey asks about specks of yellow in the green.
Seref Ozen of Cocoon in Istanbul never ceases to amaze me. I know him as one of the really innovative younger guys in the antique rug trade. What I never knew until now was that he has raised the Fez to new heights. This guy has style. I wonder if he has a Fez for me?
Have you seen this before? I never noticed the way the color extends. Let me know how common this is in Kurdish Bags.

When is a sale not a sale? When you roll back the prices and leave them there. The market has tightened up in the last few months so my old friend Jim Allen decided that if the price of gas can fall why not collectable rugs. visit him at
www.A-Bey.com

Please visit our friends at the Iran National Carpet Center. Millions of weavers and their families in Iran depend on the trade in real Persian Carpets for their livelihood. The INCC is making a real difference in the lives of parents who spin and weave and wash and trim our rugs while their children are in school.

PART 7: Barry O'Connell at the Textile Museum

Here is the last of a 7 part series of videos on my December 13th talk at the Textile Museum. I would like to thank David at www.RugRag.com for producing this documentary. I would also like to thank Wendel Swan and the Textile Museum for inviting me, Austin Doyle and Mark and Andrea Carol for loaning pieces, Harold Keshishian for his patience and wise guidance, Dan Walker for introducing me, and the audience who brought in such interesting pieces for the show and tell. To so many others who helped, contributed, and participated, thank you.

www.RugRag.com was kind enough to video my December 13th talk at the Textile Museum. In it I look at a new way to categorize Caucasian Rugs through the use of the weaver's language rather than by old place and political names.

PART 2: Barry O'Connell at the Textile Museum

Kurdish Rugs: Kurdish Khordjin with Videos - I am tying a new format with the videos. There seems to be a good bit of interest in in-depth looks at pieces so I grouped 4 videos together with some still pictures as a start.

I get some help on this one from my son Mickey. His questioning mind adds a new dimension to my work. He is also a big help in shooting the videos.
Kurdish Khordjin Saddlebag

This is the first and second part of a look at an Kurdish saddlebag. This is also a series that my son Mickey assists me with.

Next Saturday December 13th I will speak at the Textile Museum. This is a focused talk on a specific subject. I will propose a new system of classifying Caucasian Rugs based on language. People are welcome to bring Caucasian Rugs. 10:30 AM Saturday December 13th, Textile Museum 2320 S Street, NW Washington, DC Phone: (202) 667-0441

"Rug Morning" in Seattle

Saturday Dec. 6th we had a very successful "Rug Morning" here in Seattle, WA. The format was loosely based on the RTAMs at the Textile Museum and this was the first of its type for STARS (Seattle Textile and Rug Society). The meeting was Saturday morning and it drew a very good turnout for the group. Thanks to Thea Sand for the use of Emmanuel's Rug and Upholstery Cleaners in Seattle Washington. Also thanks to Fred Ingham who was a big help and also Jim Burns who lent his expertise and even held up a rug or two in the program.

Abbas Sayahi Visits Milan Italy!
The Great Dying Master Abbas Sayahi will be in Milan Italy this week at the 13th International Crafts Selling Exhibition November 29 - December 8, 2008.  This is through the INCC( http://incc.ir/fa/fairs/DispFairs.aspx?ID=32 ). Abbas will be running a dye workshop from Wednesday 3rd December. Just last week I wrote here about Abbas Sayahi in the movie Gabbeh and now visitors to the fair in Milan will have a chance to meet him. If you ever had a question about dyes ask Abbas, he has a knowledge and ability that never ceases to amaze me. Please extend my best wishes to Abbas if you see him.

Red Wefts in a Kazak Rug
The primary identifier for Kazak Rugs are the distinctive Red Wefts.
Tekke Main Carpet Wefts

In Turkmen rugs we regularly see wefts made from hair as opposed to wool. Here I take a close look at these wefts before and after they splay. I do not normally pull apart Tekke Rugs so what I found was a big surprise.
Two Cord Selvage in a Shirvan Rug
As soon as I saw this fragment it made me think of my dear friend and teacher (the late) Uncle Jimmy Keshishian. I took the Oriental Rug section of the appraisal Science course at George Washington University from Uncle Jimmy and I still draw back on what he taught me. When you see this selvage think Shirvan. Uncle jimmy's brother Harold Keshishian has a saying that I like, "If you want to know what sort of car it is, read the hubcaps." In other words look for the easy to spot identifying clues.
Turkish Knots in a Hamadan Rug

A look at the Turkish Knots in a Hamadan Rug fragment. I also include a discussion of knobby backs.
Perhaps the most important identifier is the knot. When you know the knot you are half way to identifying the rug.

Happy Thanksgiving!

My prayers and best wishes go out for all of those in today's unpleasantness at the Taj Mahal Palace & Tower in South Mumbai. I have not visited Mumbai but The Taj Palace in Dubai is a great favorite of mine. I congratulate Mr. Ratan N. Tata on his pledge, "We will rebuild every inch that has been damaged in this attack and bring back the Taj to its full glory."
I will look forward to returning to a Taj property soon.

Single Weft Rugs

Ever since I started writing on the Internet I have felt a great difficulty in explaining structural details in a way that non-specialists can understand. Sure a small percentage get what I am describing but until now I have not been able to express my thoughts in an easy way.

This video comes closer to what I am trying to say. Let me know what you think.

Baluch Band with Blue Beads Thea Sand Collection With VIDEO

Afghan Beaded Bag

This is a video on an Afghan Beaded Bag from the Thea Sands collection. This is very much a learning experience for me. I bought a new camcorder and I am starting to get the hang of this. I will be trying more ambitious projects soon.

I am hoping that by my talk December 6th I will be able to record some of that presentation. I would also like the chance to record some collections and interview some dealers and collectors.

My old friend Bashir Ahamed died July 14, 2008. I learned much from Bashir and we are poorer for his passing. My condolences to his son Hafiz and to his family and many friends.

Call For Caucasian Rugs
I will be putting the arm on some friends but if any of you can come to my talk at the Textile Museum Saturday, 10:30 am on “An Ethno-Linguistic Examination of Caucasian Rugs” and bring examples of Caucasian Rugs it would be much appreciated. I have already have word that friends will be coming in from California and New York State but with the greater number of people who cannot come I worry it may be a small turnout. If the owners of the rugs are willing I hope to video record parts of the talk.

I did received some great news today. I just got word that I will be allowed to show an incredible Zakatala Rug when I speak to the Textile Museum December 13th. It is in a private collection and I will hold off on the surprise until my talk but it is a classic Zakatala but at the same time it shows indications of Armenian provenance. By taking my ethno-linguistic historical approach I think we can gain some real insight.

Also at the TM December 13th a Movie staring my dear friend Abbas Sayahi in the movie Gabbeh. Abbas and his son Parham are some of my very favorite people in Iran. I think of them as family.
Film: "Gabbeh"
Saturday, 2:30 pm
An epic tale of forbidden passion and a romantic ode to beauty, nature, love and the textile arts, Gabbeh’s title
refers to a folkloric carpet that depicts a man and women riding away on horseback. The prized possession of an elderly nomadic couple, the carpet reveals its secret upon washing, when a serenely beautiful young woman emerges from the textile. She tells how, as a member of a nomadic desert tribe, she fell in love with the dashing, black-clad horseman pictured within the carpet. Month after month, season after season, he followed her family, howling love songs to her and longing for her to run away with him. Directed by Mohsen Makhmalbaf. In Farsi with English subtitles.
Sumru Belger Krody, Associate Curator of Eastern Hemisphere Collections, will introduce the film. FREE; reservations required. Call (202) 667-0441, ext. 64.
