Art Carpets Made from Very Unusual Materials

Art Carpets Made from Very Unusual Materials

I just came across the remarkable work of artists Stijn van der Vleuten, Marcia Nolte and Bob Waardenburg of We Make Carpets. Can you guess what everyday item they used to create this carpet?

Pasta!

The trio, whose work has been exhibited at Dutch Design Week and the art festival Flux/S meticulously create carpets out of mass-produced objects, including toys, balloons, medicinal tape, and forks. The patterns — which are unplanned and created as they go — would be lovely even in wool, but are remarkable given their extraordinary materials.
