The Oráculo Carpet
After a trip to Senegal and living with a community there, we saw how at a certain time of day, the families gathered round a tree with beautiful shade to share time together. The tree was their place of reunion. Under the canopy of the trees, daily dramas and moving love stories were played out.
From Dora Daar we wanted to bring back the significance of gathering around a tree and sharing time together to root ourselves.
The Oráculo Carpet is specially measured for the tree that you choose to gather around and share your own stories with the ones you love. It has been designed as a circular space made out of the best quality of natural spanish fiber (esparto) and can live outdoors during the warmer months of the year. It has a diameter of 4 mts and is hand braided during four days by wonderful old women in Spain that still carry the knowledge of this material.
The Oráculo Carpet is light brown and has a diameter of 4 mts.
The oráculo carpet has been designed by
Pepi de Boissieu and Nat Sly (founders of Dora Daar)
Each carpet is specially designed for the space around your trunk so it fits perfectly, so once purchased we will be in touch with instructions on how to best measure your tree.
