Carpets can be either handmade i.e. hand-knotted of machine made. We deal solely in the hand-made kind. Broadly our rugs can then be further classified into Antique and New Pieces.
Here are some of our major lines -:
Antique’ - Original pieces from Mr. Sheel Chandra’s private collection of antique rugs. This collection is acknowledged to be the single largest private collection in the world after the Sultan of Brunei’s. We have a part of this private collection available for sale at the Carpet Cellar. Geographically this collection spans the entire carpet-making world and comprises individually selected pieces from Iran, Afghanistan, India etc.The famous Bukhara carpets, Kirman rugs, Isfahans, Samarkands and many more find representation here.
‘Silk Carpets’ – The famous ‘Indian silk carpets’ manufactured by us in Kashmir; these are new carpets and can be made entirely of Silk or inSilk with a cotton foundation. These “Kashmiris” often take inspiration from the classical Persian designs. Silk is the ultimate luxury fibreand these carpets are prized for their ornate design and opulent finish
‘Antique Reproductions’ – We recreate classical Persian and Mughal carpets using the same dyeing and weaving techniques of yore. Do peruse our stylish ‘Silk and Wool Collection’ for our Persian reproductions and the ‘Mughal Jail Collection’ for our imitations of the erstwhile Jail Carpets. All these carpets are manufactured using clothing grade merino wool and are also available with silk accents.
‘Kilims’– a large selection of the flat weaves from Central Asia, Iran, Afghanistan and Turkey. These “tribal rugs” are in bold geometric designs and oft- vibrant colours. Made for self-use rather than sale, each piece then becomes unique and the handiwork remarkable.
‘Montage’ – Modern carpets in sleek lines and contemporary colours.
