Our central asian collection gif/all.gif

For more than 30 years we kept collecting rugs from central asia. In the course of the time we specialized to the items made by Uzbeks, Kyrgyz and (maybe) Karakalpaks. A great part of the items was brought to Afghanistan during and after the Russian revolution by moving nomads and was later sold to Europe because the war in Afghanistan.

A major part of our collection is devoted to the so-called "napramach" (or napramatsch), a small knotted rug. We now own more than 100 of them and intend to publish something about these after further investigation. As the literature is relatively poor, we hope for suggestions from other collectors. There are of course many other things we have collected, which you may find on our pages. At the moment we only can show you a part of our collection, but we are working to add more soon.

For a contact please you will find the addresses here.^

We have tried to keep the size of all pages small. So there are no special effects and no background textures. When you enter one of the picture pages you will find clickable thumbnails. They are related to JPG-files. The quality may not be the one you fancy, but we just want to give you an idea of what the items are like. Hit the "back" button to return to the page.
