The association had the main interest to promotte the gobelin tapestry as art. I would like to determine all passionate gobelin tapestry workers to sew only gobelins UNICAT.

Participation in the international exhibition was made possible thanks to the invitation to be a partner in organizing the event, offered by the leadership Romexpo whom we thanks again for the opportunity to exhibit at this very important fair.

Exposure conditions and facilities offered by Romexpo Bucharest led us to join and participate in Antique Market 2013 17-21 September. Our presence at the fair was a success from all points of view ( see also diploma ) . We want to perpetuate our presence in this exhibition and we will participate at the third edition wich will take place on 5-8 December 2013.
