Cochin
Pepper has nothing in it that can plead as a recommendation its only desirable quality is a certain pungency; and yet it is for this that we import it all the way from India. Pliny The Elder.

In Jew Town road has 7 massive warehouses dont miss one. Cochin is a port town so its easy to ship to the USA, but argue hard it might be more relaxed than the North but the dealers are not.

My experience at John Robshaw

My experience at John Robshaw
This summer, I spent my time interning at John Robshaw Textiles. I worked mainly on social media and web-marketing related tasks, but I also got a wonderful opportunity to see how the company worked from the inside. From my first day on the job, I felt that I became a a member of the JRT team. My colleagues were always more than willing to help out, and it was very reassuring to work and learn in that kind of environment. A few days after I had started working at JRT, I was telling a friend about everything I had been doing at my internship so far. As I explained what my job was, I then realized that I had only been at JRT for three days, yet I had already learned so much about the industry. As soon as I had step foot in the office and I saw the showroom, I fell in love with the home textile industry. As I complete my internship, I love the industry even more because I can now appreciate all the work that is behind the scenes. It amazes me that so much effort goes into each step and I was able to enjoy the feeling of fulfillment with the work I did at JRT. My internship had helped me professionally grow and learn, not only about the textile industry, but also what I am passionate about!

Magic Carpet
While darting around India, I have trod on many Indian dhurries. I am always most impressed by the pieces found in old palaces, which sometimes stretch up to 20 square feet! Since I do not know too many people who would need dhurries that large, I've come up with more reasonably sized ones that are printed on cotton. I mix and match everything else in our shop (or in our studio, perhaps?), so why not continue the trend with our rugs collection? I like to layer our dhurries on top of each other; I invite you to try it yourself and you may just lay some interesting new groundwork in your life too....
