About The Carpet Cellar
The Carpet Cellar is a specialist Gallery for the finest woven treasures. Conceived by India’s most respected curator of carpets, Sheel Chandra, The Carpet Cellar is considered a Mecca for certified antique carpets, perfectly executed recreations, modern designs, as well as kilims, durries, shawls and textiles.
The Carpet Cellar houses a range of hand woven and hand knotted masterpieces, carefully selected by Mr. Chandra for their uniqueness and brilliance over the past four decades.
The collection at the Carpet Cellar reveals a variety of styles and designs that will appeal to a wide range of tastes. Our selection illuminates the culture of areas stretching from the Black Sea to China including Mongolia, the former Soviet Union, Tibet, Turkey, Mesopotamia, Persia, Afghanistan, Baluchistan, India, Egypt and Morocco, as expressed through carpet design and artistry.
The family behind the Carpet Cellar leverages its wool, cashmere and weaving enterprises to provide the finest raw material, facilities, and classically trained artisans to facilitate the creation of all new pieces. This form of vertical integration is unique to the Carpet Cellar and enhances our capability to ensure the quality of the end product.
The Carpet Cellar is proud to have leading museums around the world borrow from our collections for exhibitions. Our patrons have publicly acknowledged the uniqueness and beauty of The Carpet Cellar’s collection over the years and our carpets can be found in the most distinguished homes and businesses both in India and abroad.
The Carpet Cellar is a rare representation of the art of oriental weaving at its best and is the largest collection of its kind in India.
