1. Where designer Jeans Go to Die!

Swedish designers Polytuft were responsible for this beautifully hand finished rug and is sold in sizes 140 x 200 cm or 160 x 240 cm from £399
The design was made under the slogan “Recycle” and laid in the patch-work style using discarded jeans, featuring high stability and durability.

2. Nudie Rag Rug

Conceived as part of the ‘post-recycled jeans initiative’ by swedish label nudie jeans, a series of scandinavian influenced denim rugs are produced with the remains of the company’s worn-out and destroyed pants.

Developed by cutting the worn textiles into jagged sections, the fabric is then rolled-up and sewn together.
Made in turkey, the rugs measure 2000mm x 1500mm and will be available exclusively at the nudie jeans house in L.A and concept stores around the world from 2012.

3. Who Likes My Wide Brimmed Chapeau?

Susan Moorhead is the designer behind this denim clad sunhat.
Susan just loves denim, loves recycling, and Ioves hats, so this sunhat is an obvious design for her. The plaid lining adds and extra point of interest.

5. Denim Do Over: I Got This Covered!

This chair was featured on Susans recycling blog ‘Denim Do Over’ http://www.denimdoover.com/about/
Susan started by cutting 3 old pairs of jeans she had into many useful things to use in the home, and ideas have grown into a full time hobby!
We have made something similar too with a 3 piece corner suite bought at auction in 2011. This was a wonderful centrepiece at our warehouse reception room until it was sold later that year!
