This rug, made from used blankets, was designed by a Dutch design duo, Tejo Remy and Rene VeenHuizen. I feel that it is an extremely successful product in addressing the issue of finding alternate ways to deal with the waste that each individual contributes to, and also of making people aware of the fact that there is a huge need to be conscious of how one’s habits and actions impact the environment. Not only is the rug extremely beautiful, but it also recycles the used blankets very efficiently. Although not very large, a lot of pieces of the blanket are needed to make the rug; the blankets have been cut and folded into very thin strips that have then been compactly sewn together.
