Tæpper på cirkulær rejse

Tæpper på cirkulær rejse
Gamle cykelslanger. Jeans slidt i laser. Overskudsgarn fra den danske tæppeindustri og recirkuleret nylon af fiskenet. Gabriella Constantinou tilsætter et enkelt nyt materiale, hamp, og giver resterne nyt liv i form af håndvævede bæredygtige gulvtæpper. Kollektionen hedder Taxidia, som er græsk for ’rejse’, og er netop inspireret af en række personers bedste øjeblik fra en rejse. Tæppernes rejse i den cirkulære økonomi fortsætter, når de brugte tæpper returneres, demonteres og indgår i vævningen af nye tæpper.

Carpets on a Circular Journey
Old bicycle tubes. Jeans worn to rags. Surplus yarn from the Danish carpet industry and recycled nylon from fishing nets. Gabriella Constantinou adds a single new material, hemp, and gives new life to the remnants in the form of hand-woven sustainable carpets. The collection is called Taxidia, which is Greek for "travel" and has been inspired by a number of people's best moments from a journey. The carpets’ journey in the circular economy continues when the used carpets are returned, taken apart and included in the weaving of new carpets.
