    Beautiful rugs, excellent service
    I have travelled extensively through turkey, Iran, Pakistan and India. On my travels I have developed a passion for rugs and enjoy viewing rugs of the area I visit. I found the approach by Andrew at Moghul Rugs refreshing, I was shown the normal display of making the rugs and the pleasantries of hospitality then the team showed the rugs. The approach was not pushy it was simply “let us show you the rugs, something you like we can discuss” We found a beautiful silk rug, we left the shop to think about it, returned later and negotiated a fair price. Andrew and his team organised for shipping of the rug we purchased from him but also another rug purchased at another store. Extremely happy with our rug and dealings with moghul rugs and would highly recommend others visit to see if something catches their eye

    Superb ethical handmade carpets
    We visited this carpet company today as part of our Taj Tour. We were sceptical at first but were at ease immediately upon entering the building. We watched the process of the handmade carpet weaving, the intricate pattern making and the process to create the finished product. The patterns were all stunning. Such skill. Excellent quality and passionate workmanship by a family who have a multi generational business. The company philosophy is ethical and you can be guaranteed there will be no child labour involved. The finished products are stunning and completely handmade. Thank you Imran for our visit and your passionate explanation of the process.

    Nice time, amazing carpets
    You have to visit this shop in Agra! The carpets are really beautiful and you can directly see, how they are made. I was with Imran and he describes and shows me everything, without any pressure and of course drinking a cup of tea together.

    Our Wonderful Experience at Mughal Carpet
    Fun experience! We had read good reviews about this shop, so we visited. Learn how the carpets are made. No hassle… they just show you different size, colors and designs. You pick out your favorite. I never felt pressured to buy. We purchased a couple of runners for ourself and family. They included shipping and they arrived by the time we returned from our trip. We love our runner and our family does too. Thanks Imran!

    An amazing yet, meaningful experience
    I recently visited Traditional Mughal Carpets in Agra and was impressed by their authentic hand-knotted Persian rugs. The owner, Imraan, took the time to explain their intricate process - from dyeing wool and silk threads, to artists hand-drawing complex patterns, to weavers spending months interlacing hundreds of colored weft through the warp on large looms. It was fascinating to see such imagination and precision come to life, fiber by fiber. The quality was outstanding yet reasonably priced. The owner's hospitality and pride in traditional craftsmanship shone through. Whether interested in artistry or culture, I'd highly recommend experiencing this local gem Store for an educational view of India's textile heritage.

    Beautiful rugs, trust worthy seller
    So I went to Agra to visit the Taj Mahal with my wife, on the way back the tour guide said, “just pop into my friends carpet shop” at that point I had no intention of buying a rug! :-) So we brought a massive rug, Imam was passionate about what he does and how it supports the community, and had a lot of patience with us, was very knowledgeable and as we found out : a man of his word. My rug is now in my villa and is truest beautiful and about 20% of the price we’d have paid in Europe, so yes very happy and yes we’d buy from him again, with just viewing the rug via vc. I can fully endorse this merchant

The transaction from ordering carpets from Mughal’s website to home delivery has yet again been absolutely seamless.

I would not hesitate to recommend Adil and his team at Mughal. This is the 3rd carpet purchase over a number of years - and won’t be the last - we need 1 more!!

Payment is via secure PayPal and delivery door to door with a tracked FedEx facility.

We are absolutely thrilled with our latest purchase.

Thank you so much, Adil and the wonderfully talented village weavers.

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.

My daughter and I visited this store after visiting the Taj Mahal. The rugs are stunningly beautiful and soft to the touch. There is a nice demonstration on how the rugs are made and you can try it yourself. The employee did not pressure us into purchasing a rug he will show you any size or style they have available. The price is negotiable so no need to go with their first "best" offer price.

Adil Khan, the owner of Mughal Carpet, is a sincere, upright, and honest person. He is the hub of the wheel of the carpet creation community in Agra. He cares about his weavers and looks after them with parental concern. That all being said, his carpets are unbelievably beautiful. They are so charged, they have the ability to not only transform the room in which they're placed, but also to uplift the vibration therein to astral heights. I speak from experience. And, when I look at those rugs and contemplate how many man-hours went into weaving them - it is staggering, and makes me even more appreciative and very, very happy about owning (two) of them.

I had a great experience with Mughal Carpet. The tour began with the history of the area and weavers. We then saw wonderful demonstrations of the various rug designs and sizes. They are able to get large rug sizes down to fit into a checked luggage bag! Or they will ship rugs internationally. The families making these rugs come from a long line of talented craftsmen and it is such a joy to have a piece of their art back home. I saw other comments of import taxes upon receiving the item. This was not an issue for receiving the package in the United States.

We called the shop with very short notice, but where treated like old friends.

After a very entertaining introduction to the basics of carpet making - including tying a couple of “knots” as well - we went into a showroom where we were introduced to some of the designs and sizes of the carpets they were selling. The team also shared how they and the 400 families making the carpets are certified to ensure proper welfare (kids’ education, Medicare, no child labour etc) for the workers’ family and children.

Despite an obvious lack of tourists in the area, we were at no point asked or pressured to buy anything.

While this store in itself may not justify the drive to and from Agra, I would say that if you ARE going to Agra, visiting this place is a must!
