13 Amazing Carpets Made of Clothes Pegs, Sponges and More

Dutch artists Marcia Nolte, Bob Waardenburg, and Stijn van der Vleuten teamed to an art collective named WE MAKE CARPETS that take unused household items such as plastic bottles, paper cups, cloths pegs, cleaning sponges and more and turn them into decorative carpets installations that can be hung like a tapestry or exhibited in the traditional sense of being draped across the floor.

In line with the recent revaluation of the craft (in combination with present-day techniques), WE MAKE CARPETS makes a contemporary interpretation of this centuries-old medium. The weaving method, use of materials and patterns reflect the 21st century. At a distance, we simply see a decorative carpet. Closer inspection will, however, surprise us. WE MAKE CARPETS sampled analog everyday items of use into carpets with impressive sizes. 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 in an inventive way to form a graphic pattern. WE MAKE CARPETS are inspired by the colour, shape and possibilities of the material chosen. The result is not just a decorative carpet, but an object that makes us think about the consumer society that produces these ‘weaving materials’. A contemporary interpretation of wealth.
