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
