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 . + Studio Brieditis & Evans The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader. Want to see your story on Inhabitat ?

Re Rag Rug is an experimental design and crafts project initiated in August 2012 by designers Katarina Brieditis and Katarina Evans in Stockholm, Sweden. Their goal is to develop one unique rag rug each month for a full year using different types of recycled materials and a variety of techniques ranging from sewing to plaiting, crocheting, knitting, macramé, rolling, cutting, applique, and embroidery. The designers’ goal is to work in a free and experimental manner to create innovative rugs – the fact that they’re made out of recycled materials is an added bonus.
