Before we begin with these details, in the interest of full disclosure, we have to mention that we are manufacturers of Indian furniture ourselves & we currently work with a couple of large retail stores. We love working in the country thanks to the love Aussies show for Indian designs & carved Indian wood furniture and also due to the fact that conversing, forging meaningful business partnerships and trading is a whole lot easier when compared to other nations
Does that mean we cannot share some unbiased information on how you should go about procuring furniture from India? Of course not! In fact, that's exactly what we'll do & you can decide for yourself if you'd want to work with us, or at least, consider us in the running.
Firstly, it is always a great idea to know which types of furniture are a country's strengths due to the ecosystem of raw materials, skilled labour & favorable government policies. India is known for housing several wooden furniture manufacturers that use both solid wood & engineered wood types. You'll find both handcrafted wooden furniture in traditional styles & even mass-manufactured furniture in contemporary designs
Also, metal based furniture is also popular across India but you'll only find cast iron, mild steel and wrought iron furniture & the country is not known for aluminum & stainless steel furniture. Essentially, handmade metal furniture suppliers & a few mid century furniture suppliers is pretty much most of it. Lastly, the country is also well known for inlaid furniture designs, this includes the bone inlay furniture that we make, stone inlay furniture & more.
Secondly, akin to the trend in most manufacturing-oriented countries, there are only a couple of hubs in India that make furniture at such a massive scale, with great prices & in high-quality materials & designs. Jodhpur is by far the most popular one, this is also where FurnitureRoots is based in.
You can now browse through some interesting Indian furniture products, after which we'll explain a standard process of importing furniture from India to Australia. This is also where we shamelessly plug-in our services, you can get in touch with us to access our digital catalog or you can just get in touch with us to know more about our batch manufacturing program & how you can import high-quality furniture from us at low cost, despite low quantity requirements
