Washington DC, 2015

The 13th International Conference on Oriental Carpets (ICOC) was held in Washington DC from 6 – 9 August 2015. This edition of these always popular Conferences was held in collaboration with and in support of the new Textile Museum on the campus of George Washington University. It was my first experience of attending the ICOC and I enjoyed it. Highly recommended to anyone who has some passion to this industry.
