All we can say is: Wow. Have you ever had an old shirt or an old pair of jeans that you just couldn’t let go of? Or maybe you went on a diet and half your clothes don’t fit anymore but you can’t bear to part with them. Or maybe someone close to you has passed away and you don’t want to dispose of their clothing just yet. Have a Carpet of Life made! Simply pack your old wardrobe items (jeans, shirts, dresses, towels, bed sheets, stockings, socks, scarves, woolen pullovers, etc – anything that has a resemblance to textile) and send them over to Carpet of Life, and they’ll make a carpet out of it. The more you send the larger size carpet will be. This brilliant process takes your old clothes, along with a sense of what you want them to represent, and turns them into a fabulous, functional work of art. Should it be a fun piece? A serious piece? It’s up to you – these are custom Carpets of Life, made to your specifications. And using those old friends – the jeans you wore through college, your daughter’s first dress, your mother’s sweater. It can be a family carpet – or a personal piece. Memories, art and function are all wrapped in one magic carpet. Like we said. Wow.
