This unique shop housed in a restored Victorian Skating Rink has since 1980 specialised in importing the traditional arts and crafts of South Asia and neighbouring countries with the focus being primarily on India and Pakistan.
These include, Oriental rugs and kelims, traditional furniture, hand block-printed and hand-woven table and bedlinen, clothes, jewellery, ceramics, table lamps, wood carvings and decorative objects.
The shop shares premises with The South Asia Collection, a museum celebrating the arts, crafts and culture of this vibrant region and its neighbouring countries which provides an atmospheric retail environment.
Country & Eastern is a major funder of The South Asian Decorative Arts and Crafts Collection Trust which manages the museum and purchases will help in the development and maintenance of the museum.
Country & Eastern and The South Asia Collection are located on Bethel Street right in the centre of Norwich, close to The Forum and The Market.
