  • Are you looking for really Genuine stuff and a wide range of options. This is the perfect place to find both with a touch of gentleman courtesy.
  • Carpet cellar has a godown here where the stuff & variety is there. But it's a godown after all so rates should be accordingly. Surprisingly, the stuff looked old & worn with time sometimes. The rates are retail ones with good margin. If u don't know what u r buying, then it's too much for a carpet. Overall genuine & old/classic stuff.
