"Each piece has been given a Western name poetically connecting women of different cultures" British Vogue
The Moroccan rug is a work of handwoven art rooted in utility and designed in a language of unique simplicity. Every rug is an expression of its weaver's heritage and life experience as the weaver is unassuming in her ancestral savoir-faire and communicates through symbolic language.
Oum offers high quality, authentic, and stylish Moroccan rugs. Each piece is a unique handwoven art requiring four to six weeks of labor totaling over 1,000 hours of work. Oum means mother in Moroccan, the company honors the master women artisans who weave these special rugs.
