  • This place is fine, but the prices they told us are at least 4x what they should be. Please please please haggle. They'll make it sound like they don't have a ton of wiggle room and that's because if it's 70% of asking price or higher whoever brought you there gets a commission. I've ended up here 3 times with different groups always because the auto driver wants to and although the products are fine, it's a bit depressing to watch people pay so much more than they should. I can't comment on shipping, I've never done it but nor have I bought anything over 2500 INR. Also once you think you've hit rock bottom then ask for a bit more off because you'll pay with cash instead of credit. For reference the one rug I've actually bought was supposedly "rs 13000" but we only paid rs 2500 cash in the end for it after 15 minutes of noncommittal back and forth.
  • I really love my rug, and the staff seemed very honest and not-pushy. However, really disappointed when I got home and FedEx demanded I pay 17% of my purchase price in import taxes :-( The thing is, I would still have wanted the rug, but I just feel it was a bit underhand not to tell me about this possibility when I purchased. I see its on the receipt but you only get the receipt once you've already paid. So its too late by then. I tried to contact them about it, but they've clearly decided they won't respond to me.
