Obeetee will be at Javits. The booth will be dressed in a hand-painted mural that illustrates a peacock in a dreamscape, celebrating the “Peacock Dreamscape” collection
The signature collection is inspired by the Obeetee‘s Big Bungalow in Mirzapur, a fabled respite from the chaotic streets of nearby Veranasi, both tranquil and vibrant, the ultimate get away. The collection is a multi-level, hand carved tufted rug of 100 percent New Zealand wool. The construction is a standard stitch and density which is ideal for both contract and residential use.
Hand-knotted “Kuba Morroccan.”
Included in the developments for the show is the new elevated “Kuba Moroccan” quality, a sophisticated high pile, hand-knotted rug with a construction that has been altered and engineered to be more suitable for contract and hospitality.
