You see it every day: Half-life jeans specifically prepped by the manufacturer for that "exposed" look. Ripped, cut, and otherwise worn jeans.... Some call it sexy, others say they're twice the money for half the fabric.
Jeans are similar to rugs in that the popular fad nowadays is that "worn look." Additionally, many teenagers, rockers and trendsetters are falling victim of "the sentimental" jeans, just like people fall in love with that one special rug. They won't let go! No matter what the price, or how many times their washing machine continues to chew up those prized hip huggers, they'll continue to love them more.
DO NOT THROW THEM AWAY! On the same note, donating ripped clothing is frowned upon by the vast majority of clothing collection boxes and thrift stores*. It creates a burden on their system, and there's nothing worse than uneccessary transportation costs and energy associated with otherwise noted Rags!
Given the sentimental attachment and the overwhelming desire to not let go... There's only one good option: turn them into Denim Rag Rugs in home! Stylish and fitting for almost anywhere in the home. Use them in front of the bath, the bed, the kitchen, the vestibule, you name it... They'll still be there for your satisfaction AND machine washable at that). Plus, you can dye them any color you wish.
