Our Company was formed on 24thSeptember, 1974 by my wife Ashu and myself for the purpose of importing hand-knotted rugs from all over the world and fulfill our dream of making our hobby our business. Having qualified as a Chartered Accountant in 1972, I have tried to bring professionalism to what are basically products of cottage industries in third world countries. Our satisfaction comes from indirectly providing employment in these countries and keeping alive the ancient art of hand-knotting these beautiful rugs and acting as a link between the weaver and you, the end user.
We import our rugs ethically and ensure that our rugs are not exploitative and specifically excludes the use of child labour and bonded labour.
In 1983, we opened our 7000 sq. ft. rug showroom in the Whitgift Centre, Croydon where we successfully traded until 2016 when our showroom lease expired and we handed back our premises to the Landlord for the imminent redevelopment of the Whitgift Centre. Due to the massive overheads of running a retail showroom, we decided that the future of rug retailing was on-line, which is where we are to-day.
A must visit shop in the Whitgift Centre where besides our vast rugs collections we offered high-end furniture from iconic brands like Grange (France), Hülsta (Germany), Ligne Roset (France) and lately Stressless (Norway), to a ever loyal and growing audience within the South of London counties.
Along with furniture, accessories and our rugs we helped our customers within Interior Design services covering curtains and other textiles to match the desired rug without hesitation to accommodate a fine hand-made rug or a more rug affordable yet beautiful rug to compliment the living space of our clients.
We deliver our rugs to all over the UK Mainland, Northern and Southern Ireland, Remote Scottish Regions and Offshore areas. For more information, please refer to our FAQ’s and Terms and Conditions.
