Arastan at Good Earth in Mumbai

Arastan at Good Earth

Kilim and Cushions

We had a wonderful ten days at Good Earth in Bombay. Saw lots of our old customers and many new ones. The space we had was lovely although with carpets you simply cannot have enough. The Good Earth team were warm and gracious and our accessories looked so beautiful mixed with Good Earth’s furnishings. Then there was the master class in visual merchandising: Mrs Lal is brilliant at it and has clearly inculcated it in the organisation.

As well as the carpets, our latest collections of ottomans, cushions and ceramic were enthusiastically appreciated but the highlight was probably our tribal cushions – especially the bright and colourful tribal kurta cushions which all sold out!

If you liked anything you saw but didn’t get a chance to come back, contact me on We ship globally (well nearly everywhere).

Back and unpacked. Happy Holi and Happy Easter.

      Thanks for the nice words. It is all back in Bangalore now at our store on Nandi Durga Road. Some pieces are also available to purchase online. If there is anything particular you are interested in that you don’t see online just let us know.
