A mong the Fall A n t i q u e s & Design Show's m o s t u n i q u e stops, one venue combines Texas epicurean food- and-wine brand Fischer & Wieser, Amadi Carpets' handsome hand- loomed rugs from Afghanistan that give back, Sabine Maes' paintings and weavings in dialogue with the land, and a lounging oasis to bask in the beautiful bucolic countryside. Cue the offerings of Halle 3 at The Halles, where all these vendors hold court. Returning exhibitor Fischer & Wieser stocks goods from their gourmet empire, founded in 1969 in Fredericksburg — one that boasts an international reach. Enjoy wine by the glass or take home a bottle, while perusing the Texas-owned emporium's sauces, salsas, jellies, jams, appetizers, soups, and more, including F&W's award-garnering condiment sensation, The Original Roasted Raspberry Chipotle Sauce (from $4). Another mainstay of Halle 3 — and a designer destination — is multigenerational Amadi Carpets. Headquartered in L.A., Amadi is profoundly connected to its homeland; refugees from the Russian occupation of Afghanistan, the Ahmadi family emigrated to the U.S. in 1984. Within two decades, they returned to Afghanistan, opening a weaving workshop in Kabul that now employs, depending on the season, 120 to 200 women, ages 17 to 80. An additional 20 men work nearby at the company's dyeing facility. ROUND TOP SHOW GUIDE ADVERTORIAL B Y C AT H E R I N E D .
