From our favorite Dutch design duo Tejo Remy and Rene VeenHuizen comes an awesome reclaimed material rug to cozy up to. Made from recycled blankets, the rug takes cuddly comfort and turns it into a great example of recycled design that your toes will love. Tejo Remy spoke at our Reclaiming Design event on the issues of reclaimed materials in design, and this is a shining example of turning potential trash into great design treasure.

    I followed a link from Apartment Therapy which was to direct me to a tutorial on how to make these lovely amoebo shaped rugs. Do you have one or a link to one? I’m not finding the tutorial anywhere on your site. Thank you!=^_^*=

    The rugs are beautiful, and they look very well crafted. I love the organic amoeboid shapes. But I do have to point out that as a strategy, this is nothing new (although nice to see it being rediscovered and reinterpreted). This is what thrifty people in New England (USA) and many other areas have done for generations: rag rugs. Long may they last!
