Obeetee Handmade Sandy Area Rug
The Sandy Rug from Obeetee has a very apt name, sporting a color palette inspired by sand, with a small, complex tile pattern. All our Obeetee rugs are handmade in India, and are made from 100% wool.
Obeetee's outstanding reputation, and premium quality have led Obeetee to be known as the premier source of handmade rugs in India.
