How many drinks do you need to decide to create this out of an old Tabriz rug?
How many drinks do you need to pay $1,800 for it?
Actually…if a rug is damaged, has little resale value, and cannot be safely used in its current condition, it is nice to be able to give it a “new life” in a different format. Pillows, wall hangings,…I’ve just never seen Bear Rug before as a way to recycle a rug.
But what about this weird one…a rug in Puerto Rico, made from…
…discarded cigarette butts!!!
It is unbelievable what some people will create and call art.
If you ever come across rugs like these, I call them simply “Weird Rugs” – then here’s some how-to suggestions on how to clean them (but, truly, you won’t be able to get the smoke odor out of that rug…):
Cleanfax – Weird Funky Rugs You never know what you are going to come across…that’s what I love about this business – always something NEW to surprise you.
P.S. Those of you who are professional rug cleaners, two topics of interest to you, some current industry politics that is affecting the rug cleaning industry…and shows that even in our little world of rug cleaning, we have political pollution. Surprise, surprise…
