Manon Juliette Recycled Leather Rugs

It seemed odd to us at first that leather could be recycled but these leather rugs, by Manon Juliette, show us that not only is it possible, it's also being done with great success. Available in an array of colors, Juliette's rugs show that they are more than just a pretty face.

The rugs were created using leather scraps and offcuts sourced from various factories; the scraps were then bound together without synthetic adherents to form the rugs. They were designed in such a way that their shape can be easily changed if the owner chooses to do so.

The leather rugs come in 14 colors and three different styles: Feliz, Procura Fortuna and Novo Impulso -- with Procura Fortuna and Novo Impulso still in production.

What do you think of these?
