History of eic

We're proud of our history as Vancouver's premier fine carpet retailer.  Since our inception in 1948 we've worked hard to make East India Carpets the best in the field.

Trusted, experienced and reputable, East India Carpets is the first choice of homeowners and Vancouver's top interior designers.  We import affordable handmade carpets from the world’s finest weaving centers to our Vancouver showroom.  From there these rugs go on to enhance the finest homes and businesses in the area.

East India Carpets founder Jab Sidhoo set our high standards of quality and service back in 1948. Today, his son Ravi and the staff at EIC are proud to continue this tradition.

We invite you to experience the beauty, luxury and warmth that a fine carpet can bring to any interior.  From funky shags to the perfect hallway runner to exotic designs from India, Persia and Tibet, East India Carpets has something that will fit perfectly with your home décor and within your budget.
