All material is good material, if you find the right use for it. Studio Brieditis & Evans challenges our notion of waste in Re Rag Rug, a design project that brings new life to materials considered worthless by the textile industry. The premise of the project is simple: one month, one technique, one rug. Over the course of 12 months, the designers created 12 unique rugs, all made without using a loom and crafted from excess fabric remnants. The 12 prototypes are currently being exhibited at Institut Suédois in Paris, France, until April 10, 2016. You can read more about their rug-making process on their blog.
