The brand—which is ran by a London based mother-daughter duo—design gigantic area rugs in the shape of faces. They pull from African culture and all speak to the beauty of African people and the style of specific countries and people within the continent. For example: the Namibia rug is inspired by the landscape of the country it’s named after. Subtle in the reference, the rug is obviously very bold since it’s a pretty, demure woman caught in a low gaze.
OT&O do a lot more with these rugs, too. They reference popular culture—like this Erykah Badu inspired design—and are even framed to be art for your feet, like this Headwrap Queen design. There are even male rugs too. Most fabulously—and pretty gayly too—their rug The Rainbow Journey is a wonderful, geometric symbol of life. It’s so beautiful (and, yes, I’ve attempted to purchase this but I don’t think I can afford it).
All the rugs are made from Indian wool and can be as large as nine feet by nine feet (three meters by three meters). Moreover, some of the people-shaped rugs do come in different skin tones, which adds an element of personalization. You can check out more of OT&O’s rugs here.
