Special guided tour "Embroidered Gardens"

16 March 2023

Dear friends of the Museum for Islamic Art,

we would like to cordially invite you to an exclusive special guided tour!

Curator Dr Deniz Erduman-Çalış will guide you through the special exhibition "Gestickte Gärten - Osmanische Textilien aus der Sammlung Borgs".

When: 16 March 2023 from 18:00-19:00
Where: Book Art Cabinet, Museum of Islamic Art
Limited number of participants: 15 persons

Binding registration is required at info@fmik.de. You will receive a confirmation email with all further details.

The special presentation in the Book Art Cabinet of the Pergamon Museum, on view until 16 April 2023, provides insights into a sub-area of the rich textile tradition of the Ottoman Empire: Alongside carpets and woven fabrics, the lesser-known embroideries played a major role above all in the domestic contexts of the cities. They were part of every young woman's trousseau and were kept like a treasure. The exhibition shows towels, napkins and belt scarves embellished with rich embroidery from the Borgs Collection dating from the 16th to the 19th century. The precious works were generally created at home, some particularly elaborate embroideries are the work of professional embroiderers.

Yours sincerely, Your Board
