About Us

Istanbul has been an important center for oriental rugs for hundreds of years. The city is now proud
to welcome ICOC XV by offering a unique experience to participants with the wealth of its
collections, museums and its thousands of years of cultural heritage. In the image of the city
spanning between two continents, ICOC XV will bridge the past and the future of oriental carpets
by presenting high quality lectures, exhibitions and hidden treasures. With its pre-and post-
conference tours to visit important weaving centres and museums throughout Anatolia, ICOC XV is
also providing the opportunity to get a full immersion into Anatolia’s weaving culture under the
guidance of experts.
