"The Redeploy Rug combines the necessary durability of military surplus blankets with the organic fluidity of a topographic-esque pattern. With a stitch and a stuff they come together to transform your floor into an inviting landscape..."
"The rug shown draws on the beauty of 100% wool Russian army blankets from the 1950's. After the stitched pattern is in place, the blankets are carefully hand-stuffed with wool-blend army surplus blankets and finished with an edge detail that emphasizes the organic lines. The full blanket version measures approximately 60" x 72".
This design was inspired by the inherent coolness of military surplus which is beautiful in its lack of frivolity. "
