New England Rug Society

Appreciation of antique rugs is widespread throughout the United States, and New England is no exception to this phenomenon. The New England Rug Society was formed in 1985 as the New Boston Rug Society, and now it has over 130 members who "share a common love of the traditional creative textile arts." On their website, visitors will find sections such as "Meetings", "Newsletter", "Gallery", "Literature", and "Blog". The "Gallery" area contains a selection of excellent online exhibits, including "Rare and Unusual Turkmen Pile Weavings" and "Small Weavings of the South Persian Nomads". Next up is the "Literature" section. Here visitors will find links to thoughtful pieces authored by Society members, and the offerings including "How Good is My Rug Collecting?" and "Some Thoughts on Islamic Prayer Rugs and Related Textiles". The site is rounded out by information on joining the Society and a link to their blog.
