We Make Carpets
Dutch design collective We Make Carpets produce unusual contemporary carpets mixing traditional weaving skills with the use of everyday items to reflect a critical view of modern consumer society.
Everyday products that normally have no value once they have been used – such as plastic forks, plasters, paving tiles, pasta, cotton balls and pegs – are arranged to form impressive graphic patterns.
Made up of 600 metres of clothesline and 30,000 pegs, Peg Carpet (pictured) was designed specially for the Glass Gallery of the Graphic Design Museum in Breda, The Netherlands. It will be displayed there until August 28 2011.
