One company that demonstrates this modern take on the trash to treasure ethos so well, is Rug Solid. The Danish upcycling company takes leftover materials from the fashion industry, along with bicycle tubing, to create one-off rugs with a sustainably stylish twist.
Using recycled leather or cotton, the handmade process creates a unique blend of colours and patterns, so that each rug has its own special distinctive character.
“Help us give garbage a second chance!”
With the motto “less waste, more function”, each Rug Solid rug has a special story behind it. Some article of clothing you threw out last summer, might just have been reincarnated into their next design for all you know!
