One of the greatest things about oriental rugs is the fibers come from
renewable resources. What's the next best thing? Recycling "retired"
bicycle tires. According to plushpod.com,
Nani Marquina, after a trip to India, recognized the potential of using
old inner tubes to fabricate into utility serving rugs.
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!
