Re-Rug. Explore the beauty of waste

Re-Rug was born from the desire to take advantage of the leftover wool generated by our suppliers. An initiative that has involved a long research process, the challenge of recovering these wools to create a new thread suitable for knitting.

Each Re-Rug uses 1kg/m2 of reprocessed wool and therefore contributes directly to the reduction of “unmanagement waste” as well as to the reductions of Co2 emissions, since virgin material does not need to be generated.

Leftover wool

We separate the wools by color with the aim of developing two models of RE-RUG rugs: one in color and the other in black and white.

Carved threads

We manually carve the threads into small parts to later mechanically open them and transform them back into fiber.

Reused threads

We create the yarn by hand from recycled fiber through a process of rotating and stretching it.

The unique character of this collection lies in the intention to preserve the irregularity and tonal richness of the mountains of wool. A challenge that has led us to experiment with new processes through which we have managed to maintain the multicolored appearance of the thread.

Instead of trying to organize the heterogeneous mountains of unclassifiable wool, we have chosen to accept them as they are and carve them. The result is a rug with a unique vibrant mottlement.

The five resulting threads range from the most grayish to the most colorful. A degradation of the color that we have achieved by regulating the degree of carving of the wool.

The more we crushed and mixed the colored wools, the grayer the fibers became; and on the contrary, the less we crushed them, the more tonal and random richness we achieved.

The artisans

The Re-Rug collection is made using the hand loomed dhurrie technique, which is characterized by being a carpet with a flat structure formed from the crossing between the weft and the warp. In the case of Re-Rug, to obtain greater resistance and quality, the structural part of the carpet, that is, the warp, is made using New Zealand virgin wool dyed in black and white, yellow or blue. And in the weft, the marbled recycled yarn of different thickness that varies in color. The result is a unique collection that is made up of 50% virgin wool and 50% reused wool.
