Recycle rug

Recycle rug is crafted out of recycled T-shirts and the first one out in a series of hand-made rugs 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 rugs 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.
