An old family carpet business established in 1967, means you can be sure your feet will be treated to great quality. The Mehras promise us the finest wool and silk, and carpets that range from at least 100 knots to a staggering 2,500 knots per square inch.

Visit to browse and then go over to the Worli store to buy the whole range, and imagine one foot standing over a splotchy geometric rug and the other over a gorgeous tribal print dhurrie. Which one do you like more? Heck, get ‘em both! 

Here’s a quick snapshot of what you can expect at the store:

Modern: The modern range of carpets showcase abstract designs inspired by nature; clean, hard geometric prints; and ‘transitional’ ones that are meant to be classic with a modern element snuck in. Perfect for the lady and gentleman who live in that all-glass house.

Traditional: These are luxurious, floral and patterned – everything we know you love.

Kilims & Dhurries: This section is our favourite – dhurries and kilims in deep maroons and bold prints, woven with elaborate detail by tribes in India, Iran and Afghanistan. Psst: Among the Irani rugs, keep an eye out for the red piece with intricate needlepoint designs.

We’re just going to leave that there.
