Round rag rug 32 inches handmade from reclaimed t shirts bold colors
It measures approx 32 inches across.
It's solid back trim really makes the colors pop.
Heavy and very durable.
"How did you do that ?" you ask. I cut each tee shirt by hand, This is a very time consuming process. I start with t shirts that have no seams. First I cut out the t shirts mid sections. Then working in a spiral, i cut around the t shirt in a continuous strip about as wide as my thumb. After all the cutting is done, i stretch it until it rolls up on itself creating a "yarn" I use cotton t shirts as this works best. I then crocheted the rug. I don't join with knots. I just add a new piece by crocheting over the last couple of inches of the previous one (makes it a little thicker this way too).
All of the fabric was washed before used, and hosed off and air dried in the Florida sun after completion to remove any loose fibers.

You can see one of my satisfied customers Hadley posing on one of my multi colored rugs in the last photo

I would recommend just to hose off and air dry. I hang mine over the railing outside. No bleach. Lay flat outside and reshape while damp.

Be careful if using on slick surfaces as it does not have a slip proof backing.

Please note: The fabrics used where previously washed, but cannot guarantee against color bleed if used on top of carpets. I would advise using some type of liner to prevent color bleed just to be safe.
As with any throw rug, if placed on top of another rug/carpet it most likely will leave an impression depending on the duration of it being left down. Best to move around if concerned.Use your own discretion. I claim no responsibility for color bleed damage, or impressions that may occur.


*Please Note. I get t shirts upon availability from my local thrift store.So if you want certain colors, it could take quite a while. Also colors will most likely be shades off from each other, but i will do my best to accommodate. Custom sizes welcome
