Soft, recycled T-shirts are reborn as lovely braided rugs, extending their use for years to come. Laurine Seymour took her inspiration from Industrial Revolution-era woven textiles and sought to create a durable and well-crafted rug out of salvaged materials. She gets the shirts from local thrift stores and then slices the stretchy, cotton fabric into slender strips. She braids the "threads" into a tight, flat coil, and then tucks the ends in for a neat finish. The remarkable craft and uniformity of her rugs makes them well-sited to creative pairings in your home. Place a rug in your kitchen or living room to center the space, or warm up any entryway while providing guests a pretty spot to stow their shoes. Handmade Otisville, NY.

Made in New York

Exclusively for UncommonGoods

I have been making rugs for almost 6 years now – that’s over 600 rugs to date! My rugs are predominantly made from up-cycled t shirts that I purchase from local charities as part of my business' mission to be an eco-friendly company. The t shirts are carefully washed and then meticulously braided by hand. Finally, I sew each one together on a heavy duty machine. My rugs are incredibly durable yet so soft on the feet and made to last for years. I truly hope you love and enjoy your rug as much as I did creating it!

      Comments about UncommonGoods Hand-Braided T-Shirt Rug - Pepper:

      The floor in my bedroom gets really cold in the winter between the bed and the window (small apartment). I was looking for a small rug to fit the space but most were 2 X 3 feet - the 3 feet part being too wide and then I came across this rug. It was the perfect size for my spot, very soft to stand on and my feet are very happy to have a rug instead of standing on the cold floor.

      The rug is very well made, I have had it in place about 3 weeks now and all is going well. I was very happy that it uses recycled material, is handmade and the packaging was ECO too! Thanks to the great artist who created it and Uncommon Goods for carrying it.
