Hassan’s Carpets is a family-owned business spanning four generations, started in the late 1800s when the family patriarch left Kashmir for Singapore, leading to the establishment of its first showroom at The Heeren in 1930s. Today, Hassan’s Carpets is located on the second floor of Tan Boon Liat and remains a family business that welcomes its customers like family members.
During Saturday Indesign, Hassan’s Carpets will welcome visitors into a vibrant world of colours articulated by the company’s vast collection of modern and traditional carpets – an installation that will both boost your Insta credential and impart useful tips to care for your rugs.
How interactive can carpets be as two-dimensional items? You’d be surprised. Don’t forget to stop by Jehan Gallery, one of Singapore’s oldest carpet retailers, during Saturday Indesign and have fun with the installation there! It will involve print Polaroid, ceiling-mounted camera and a whole lot of fun! The showroom will also host a talk in rugs – RSVP opens soon!
