MA Trading Company (MAT) is a 77 year old business that operates worldwide and is synonymous with innovative design, modern ambiance, the latest trends and lifestyle products.
In 1942, a few years before India gained independence from Britain, Mohammed Ayub Ansari, the family patriarch and a man of vision and commitment, entered the business of manufacturing and exporting handmade carpets. Being born into a weaving family and worked as a weaver himself, Mohammed had a strong faith for ethical business practice and treating people with respect and dignity whether it is a customer or worker in the factory. In 1966, his son, Naimullah Ansari, founded the M.A. Trading Company, named after his father. Naimullah Ansari took the initiative of finding new markets, and was also the main figure behind the design team. He introduced Scandinavian style hand woven woolen druggets/durries, and made the MAT a well known name in the marketplace.
