There are rag rugs, and then there are RAG RUGS. Moa Hallgren makes the most playful and yet distinct textile carpets made of re-used cloths. They are handwoven on her own loom in Berlin. (But the production is now on hold, tells her homepage).
Traditionally, rag rugs were made of old clothes and other fabrics used in the home or in life, in a time where everything that could was saved.. The carpets became a history and memory in itself.
In rag rugs you can put in just a small piece of cloth from that important frist day of school, or maybe a little bit of the small and clothes of your first born child... - and the rag rug keeps your history in mind without telling secrets to anyone.
