Rugs

Recycle rug (the black one) is the first one out in Rugs and is crafted out of recycled T-shirts inspired by the rag rug in our Swedish folk homes. In the same “you take what you have”- spirit, old unusable materials get recycled into Recycle rug and given a new form, function and life. The various frictions in the T-shirts provide the rug with a natural grayscale that visually contribute to a sense of depth. Thanks to the elastic material of the t-shirts the rug is thicker and softer than a regular rag rug. The result is a kind of updated modern version of the old Swedish housewife rag rug.

The other three rugs are also made of residual materials but are sewn on the sewing machine and have a base of industrial felt, made to 50% from renewable materials.
