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.
