Re Rag Rug Creates Gorgeous Handmade Rugs From Recycled Thrift Store Sweaters
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.
