Recycled Denim Rug from Annikki's Weaving Studio

|
Congratulations to our lucky winner, Tori!

Denim rugs are great for the same reason you love your favorite pair of jeans — they go with nearly anything, and they wear really well! Nearly all of the rugs from Annikki's Weaving Studio are from recycled materials — old clothing, sheets, or other household fabrics. This rug, which measures 34.5 by 29.5 inches, is made from jeans too worn for wear anymore, but still with a lot of good fabric in them. The jeans are cut apart and into strips using scissors and a manual strip cutter; then the strips are sewn together using a treadle sewing machine. They are then hand-woven on a handmade antique loom.

The only electricity used to make these rugs is the light to sew by and the radio for a little music to weave by!

I am seriously coveting this beautiful rug that Annikki's Weaving Studio has generously contributed, but unfortunately for me and lucky for you- it's for the giveaway!

I think my favorite in the shop right now is the Bright Green rug in Diminishing Colors-- but then that leaves out the knitwear! Arg, it's all such solid, appealing work!

And I do want that denim rug-- I know just where I'd use it!
