Live Your Aladdin Fantasy & Go On A Magical Carpet Ride At This 50-Year-Old Store In Worli

Jayati posted on 10 August

Mehra Carpets has been in the business for almost 50 years now {they celebrate their golden jubilee on August 15}. Started by Mr. K.K Mehra, it has come a long way since then. The not-so-humble basement-cum-store in Worli is like a Bedouin tent – lined with carpets as far as the eye can see and beautifully so. In our honest opinion, if a carpet heaven were to exist, it would be this.

Handmade, With Love And Knots

Mehra Carpets at any given time has at least 2,500 to 3,000 carpets at their store – the magnificent, the regular, the royal and the exquisite ones.

Walk in and hear a muffled bark of  a Tibetan Mastiff, but carry on with the carpet mission. On your way you will be greeted by a variety of carpets, all ready to please you – from the Caucasian and Kilims, to the Kashmiri silks, Bokharas and even the Kashans.

The Finer Details

One after the other, beautiful, intricately done patterns and designs donning the carpets are presented. There’s pure silk woven carpets and then there’s the woollen ones – or if you’re looking for something regular, there are the machine-made ones that are equally breathtaking.

Every carpet has a story, a weaver, and a price that the patrons feel worthy of paying. Interestingly, we’ve been told the carpet industry, like other creative industries, follows trends too.

Look around and you will come across carpets with minimal and modern designs playing with mono colours, or the more traditional ones that will have any Aladdin beg for his very own flying carpet.

We found some bizarre designs such as a customised alien on a carpet and even scenes from Arabian nights. If you’re all about modern art, then they also offer 3D carpets {keeping up with trends or starting them?}.

What We Love

The carpets come in all shapes, sizes, colours and designs. If you’re a novice, we’re told you are in safe hands. Every carpet here is intricately made and rightfully so, they’re priced at what they deserve – a beautiful quality Persian may cost you almost INR 5,00,000.

 

They work with skilled weavers and have a manufacturing unit in Amritsar where this magic is made. You can get customised carpets here, and depending on the detailing and the material used, it could take anywhere between two months to three years to get made. You can mix and match colours, material or completely leave it to the staff to guide you through.

Fact: the higher the knots in one square inch, the more expensive the carpet. However, the machine-made carpets start at INR 6,000 in case you’re looking. They also have stunning wall hangings.

So, We’re Saying…

One doesn’t just leave with a carpet in tow, and happiness in heart; you go back with knowledge and love for this form of art. Almost like a painting, what sets it apart is that this art makes no bones about you walking over it.

#LBBTip: The general shelf life of a carpet is subjective, though it can easily last for up to 50 years or more. If you’re looking to repair or restore a carpet, get it back to them and the deed will be done.
