ICFF 2010

May 21, 2010

So, ICFF is over. After all the preparation, and waiting, it went by very fast! At first there was a bit of a hitch, one of my rugs ‘Branches’, which is pure silk, was supposed to hang on the wall. Once up though, there was just an amazing sheen of color and no design to be seen as the silk pile caught the light so dramatically. It ended up on the floor which turned out to be a good thing, as then people were able to walk around it and see the branch design disappear as they moved around. I think the show went well, hard to gauge as it was my first time showing but I met a lot of interesting people and the rugs got a very good response. The other attendees were also great, and I got to know some of the other GoodWeave rug designers – a really nice group of people.

Very excited after receiving almost all of my rugs samples, the factory did an amazing job and the quality is beautiful. Just one more to come, there was a general strike in Nepal last week (lasting an unusually long 6 days which must have been horrendous for the people there as everything basically has to close, businesses, stores etc.) which held it up but it is en route now so will hopefully get here in time. ICFF starts Saturday so fingers crossed!
