This rug is so colorful and nostalgic! Like so many others, I'm sure, I have fond memories of making those old loomed potholders. I came across this on Great Green Goods last week. The rugs are from a Massachusets company called Crispina. They use 100% recycled t-shirts to make the rugs, and they're woven on giant looms just like the potholder looms from childhood!! They are cushy at 1" thick and are chemical-free so they make great flooring for baby to play on. What a happy rug for kids and adults alike.
