Indian Industries

Princess St, Fort Nagar, Fort Kochi, Kochi, Kerala 682001, India

Fort Cochin, and especially the area around Jew Town, has long been famous among those with a taste for Indian furnishings and art. Its warehouses are crowded with works and antiques from the city’s colonial past (British, Dutch and even some Portuguese pieces) as well as items from later furniture makers and craftspeople. A standout store is Indian Industries, on Princess Street, run by the same family since the 1940s. As you explore this cavernous space filled with furnishings and artworks, you may be tempted to fill a shipping container with purchases. If you are, they can take care of all the arrangements.
