There are a plethora of "resources" online about rugs. Unfortunately, many are less than acceptable: automated robots scraping content from other sites, bloggers using keywords for advertising purposes with no real content, and others (our favorites) which feature highly relevant and worthwhile material. A fine example of the latter being Jozan.
For many years jozan has been our favorite for the following reasons: A great newsletter, solid directory and blog, rug books, beautiful rugs for browsing, and calendar of events.... Most recently, and with the previous said, we were very excited to see Jozan featuring great videos and slideshows relevant to rug weaving areas. In some cases, collections featured as well!
Jozan was created in 2002 by Ivan Soenderholm as a digital magazine/portal for enthusiasts, avid collectors and aficionados of oriental rugs. Be sure to check out videos currently viewable on Jozan!
