Weaving Art Museum and Research Institute

The goal of the Weaving Art Museum is "to promote increased appreciation for the historic weaving art of indigenous weaving cultures located in the Eastern Mediterranean and the adjacent areas known as the Caucasus Mountains and Southwestern Turkmenistan." On the site's homepage, visitors can make their way through online exhibits that explore ancient carpet fragments, the use of animals in medieval rugs, and the "unknown shawls of Egypt." Each small exhibit contains information about the weaving patterns and the materials used in each item. Visitors won't want to miss the "Turkmen Trappings" exhibit, as it contains a detailed discussion of these unusual items, along with a number of detailed examples from the world of the knotted pile. All told, there are ten different exhibits, and anyone with an interest in this type of material culture will want to make several visits to this site.
