Discussing the upcoming Greater Anatolia Rug and Textile Study Tour

Offered by The Black Tent Project and HALI, and led by Deniz Coşkun, the ‘Greater Anatolia Rug and Textile Study Tour’ is being held from 24 May–5 June 2024. Participants will be taken on a journey through weaving regions in Turkey, encountering an eclectic array of rugs and textiles in Istanbul, Bursa, Bergama, İzmir, Tire-Birgi, Ankara, Cappadocia, Sultanhanı and Konya just ahead of the ICOC XV in Istanbul.

‘Not only is Deniz Coşkun an experienced guide with a high level of professionalism, attention to eventuality and the requirements of a specific group, but he also draws on an infectious enthusiasm and personal passion for weaving, rugs and textiles. His detailed knowledge of the practical aspects of weaving and its connections with pastoralist and transhumant culture and communities offered important context and perspective.’ For other guide testimonials, visit The Black Tent Project website.

HALI Tour manager Rachel Meek spoke to Deniz Coşkun about what attendees can expect from the tour. Listen to the discussion below.
