Textiles from Africa and the Andes emerge as strong geographic themes in this issue. The exploration of a loan exhibition of North and West African textiles from The Karun Thakar Collection at the Brunei Gallery in London rubs shoulders with a view of little-known weaves from the Cape Verde Islands. In both cases the authors are veteran British Africanists who focus on technique and loom technology in the shaping and understanding of textile art. Crossing the Atlantic, we feature carpets and tapestries from Colonial Peru that owe much to contemporaneous Old World carpet traditions, and look at the Fifi White Collection of pre-Columbian textiles, one of the USA’s best, on display at a commercial gallery in Santa Fe. In addition, the author of a newly published book reflects on three superb Kazak rugs from his collection, and another recently published writer comments on the use (or not) of cartoons in the weaving of Safavid Persian carpets. There is a profile of the USA’s leading dealer in antique and art textiles, and a preview of a small but select single owner antique carpet sale in Vienna, in addition to regular features such as Auction Price Guide and previews and reviews of a wide range of international exhibitions and fairs, including HALI’s own recent anniversary event, HALI London.
