Due to Lisa's great post from last week, How To: Make an Alterna-Flor Rug , we got this tip about Huck, a fellow who makes something very similar out of recycled carpet samples:
Huck uses all recycled carpet samples, fits them together into either a runner or a rug (no easy feat when working with irregular sizes) and sews them all together. no duct tape, all stitching.
Huck is in LA and can be reached at go2huck.aol.com. There are more pics below. (Thanks, Jim!)
