Asian Ethnic Textiles

While living in India and SE-Asia for 20 years we have been collecting fine textiles, ethnic jewellery and ritual statues and objects in various tribal and village communities and from trusted local dealers. We are now retired in Berlin/Germany and offer a selection of our embroideries, ikats and weaves to new owners.
