  Clients who commission one-of-a-kind pieces by Carpet of Life often provide clothes from their own personal wardrobes and/or household tea towels, bed linens, heirloom stashes, and even recycled plastics. Designers have even been known to recycle a previous season's collection or graduate thesis project to celebrate and experience their former creations underfoot. Image courtesy of Carpet of Life.

  Carpet of Life is an Amsterdam and Moroccan-based initiative that has provided sustainable income for the Moroccan women weavers. In the process, they are also preserving an art form that is sacred to the Sahara. Design details and motifs are derived from natural inspiration, aromatic perfumes, local sounds, and culinary tastes. Image courtesy of Carpet of Life.
