Our Story

For the past 20 years I have been cutting out the middle-man markup as the leading direct import retailer in Louisiana, providing shake your head in disbelief, EXTREME VALUE.

This joint venture with an Indian Rug Factory is something I started to develop around 18 years ago with my Business Manager in India. 

Tanveer grew up in Bhadohi, India, the Rug Capital of the World and owns & operates a Rug, Pouffe & Pillow Weaving Facility there. He has lived and breathed this product since childhood as a 3rd Generation Rug Manufacturer.

He has pushed me since Day 1 to partner with him. The explosion in e-commerce of home furnishings, due to Covid, was the catalyst that made it finally happen.

He produces the goods offered by Banana Manor, that we together sell direct to the consumer online and through our 10,000 ft² Rug Factory Outlet in Uptown New Orleans.

This is as straight from the source as it gets and with every layer of overhead eliminated allowing us to sell direct and for you to SAVE BIG.


In the form of an admittedly politically incorrect brand, for those that find joy & passion in fun, laughter & beauty, I present to you my curated offering of Stylish, High Quality Rugs, Pouffes & Pillows, Humorous Home Decor & MORE.
  • Buy off of the Floor from the Rug Factory Outlet.
  • Purchase “In Stock in New Orleans" items online and they will be To Your Door in 4-10 days.  
  • Or select any rug on the website and we can make it any size, shape or color-way you desire. Usually for the same cost as buying an In-Stock Rug.
  • “Made to Order Rugs” take between 3-6 months.
  • Give yourself a pat on the back. You truly are “Buying SMART”.
  • India Direct Prices with Big Easy Customer Service.
  • We also import Moroccan Rugs, Pouffes & Pillows and Cowhide Rugs from Brazil  and Afghani Oushaks to add fun layers to the mix.
