Carpet Cellar New Delhi (India)

Business overview

Mr. Sheel Chandra's private collection at The Carpet Cellar reveals the range of styles and designs that the words oriental carpet stand for. Representing the culture of a vast area stretching from the Black Sea eastward to China including Mongolia, the erstwhile Soviet Union, Tibet, Turkey, Mesopotamia, Persia, Afghanistan, Baluchistan, Egypt & Morocco and India as well, the Carpet cellar is the place where you can see the effects of socio-economic developments affecting the weaving tradition of a region. Often borrowed by leading museums from around the world for exhibitions, these carpets are unique pieces - each in its own frame, with its own subtlety & complexity. Some carpets represent gardens to remind the user of the pleasures of paradise, or of spring, while they kept the floor warm in winter, others depict hunting scenes, floral & animal motifs and geometrical & lattice patterns. There are still others with verses found in borders, culled from works of leading poets or composed by unknown writers for a particular carpet. From the finest classic carpets of the Safavid period in Persia, to the wonderful varieties and charming textures of the Moghul Indian carpets to further still the kilims, saddlebags and ornamentation of camels & horses during ceremonial occasions, The Carpet Cellar is a rare represendtation of the art of oriental weaving at its best. We import the finest merino wool from Australia and New Zealand, which are actually used to manufacture suiting and thus possess a silk like sheen. We have engaged the finest weavers from Kashmir and U.P whose families have been engaged in this form of art for generations, to recreate these exquisite pieces. We are thus trying to revive the original Indian patterns to their long lost glory.
