how to make your carpet of life a reality?
Select and wash the items in your wardrobe that you wish to include in your carpet. Have an open mind! Towels, bed sheets, stockings, socks, scarves, woolen pullovers are all usable! Anything that has a resemblance to textile.
Make a nice color selection! Remember, the colors you choose will determine the general look of you carpet.
Cut all clothing items completely through down the middle to start the process of creating the ‘thread’ for the carpet – this action also helps avoid any problems at customs.
You will need to collect at least eight kilograms of material for the smallest size carpet (70 cm x 120 cm). See all the quantities required in relation to carpet size under pricing.
select the pattern you would like for your carpet from the different style categories we offer as inspiration (see gallery – patterns or use button below) – you can also ask for a more conceptual design if you prefer.
Write down your fondest memories of your clothing items or send us pictures if you like.
You can also make an appointment with us to capture this for you.
Write down your name and address clearly on the box or bag.
