Retired Tires Get New Life! Bicicleta Rug: Made From Inner Tubes!

While certainly not your traditional, classic, Persian rug, the idea behind these rugs resonates nothing short of a movement in the right direction.  The size measures in at 5ft. 6in. x 7ft. 9in. and can be found in a varying price range in and around $1600 or so.  Each rug is constructed with nearly 140 tubes, creating not only an interesting texture, but an easily cleaned floor covering.  Either vacuum, or use a mild detergent with water!
