Chinars in Mumbai - at the Kashmir Government Arts Emporium 

Located at the World Trade Centre, Chinar, the Kashmir Government Arts Emporium, was established in the year 1980. It is part of the unemployment enterprise by the Government of Jammu & Kashmir, engaging all award winning artisans with the view to showcase Kashmir handicrafts.

"Over the two decades that we have set up shop in the World
Trade Centre, we have been able to improve qualitatively and quantitatively. There has also been a notable increase in our turnover and sales," says Nazir Ahmed Beig, manager, Chinar, Kashmir Government Arts Emporium. "The best selling items in our store are our Kashmiri oriental carpets in silk, silk cotton and wool. They cost anything between Rs 15,000 to Rs 1 lakh depending on the knotage," he continues. Their customers are mostly NRIs and they have a daily customer flow of 50 to 100 people, depending on the season.

"Our handicrafts are original and handmade and a customer takes a minimum of 40 to 45 minutes to browse through our store,"
says Beig. All the people in the store have come down from Kashmir, and they have very good knowledge of the products, their manufacturing process, the raw materials involved and can even advice the customer on what will be the most suitable product.
