Story Behind the Art: Within the city's medina (center of town), there is a souk (market) where most of the artisans work. This is also the center of trade for each city. Artisans who create Moroccan leather goods are predominantly male. Leather goods are made from lambskin. Artisans live in small villas made of concrete, which is a building material that is plentiful in Morocco and also insulates the residents from the extremely high summer temperatures and intense sun.
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.
I was eye-ing this ottoman for a while based on its price, color and good reviews, and I was thrilled when this item became re-stocked again, so I bought it right away as soon as it was available. But, only to come to a dissapointment when I opened the box to find that the color does not match with the color shown on the listing. Not to mention, there are a few small holes in the leather.
So, unfortunately I returned this back to OS!
I love the bright uniform pumpkin color, size and weight of this ottoman. The leather does not have a bad smell and is sealed well enough that it did not stain when my dog licked it. It is very solid, unlike the ones I bought in Morocco and had to stuff myself. Mine arrived with a small tear next to one of the points in the stitching which I find acceptable given the nature of the product. It is a fun, offbeat and useful accent piece that really livens up a quiet corner in my study.
I purchased two of these, after reading the reviews here. I was wary, but decided to take a chance. They arrived yesterday, and straight out of the box looked scuffed and worn. Upon closer inspection, I noticed pen markings on both! (one on the top, the other on the bottom). Additionally, there are black marks all over one of them. I decided to return them, which was good, b/c when I came downstairs this morning, and saw them in natural light, I realized they are different colors! One is like a pumpkin orange; the other is more tangerine. I like supporting local artisans, and I have no problem with something looking 'handmade'; however, I feel these are just really poor quality. I've had great luck with all my other overstock furniture purchases, so I'm sad this one didn't work out.
I have seen similar ottomans at 3 times the price. This is a bit smaller that I had anticipated but a better quality than I had anticipated. Looks great. Comfortable to put your feet on or to sit upon.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? It is perfect turquoise.

I'm sorry to say I see the green is the only color we currently have in stock. It pains me to say we don't have information made available to us on when or if the other colors will come back in stock. I'd recommend keeping an eye on their availability on the site.overstockcustomercare1 on Mar 1, 2012
