Carpet Burn Clutch

Carpet-Burns is a company based from Derby (UK) that takes recycled (polypropylene) carpet and burns it — like an iron — to form these excellent plastic tiles with the carpet pattern intact. While they started making tea trays, magazine racks, and clutches (left), the company’s strength lies in material design, so they now focus on 1x1ft. tiles and large 4×2.5ft. panels that can form great waterproof floors both interally/externally. They also take one-off commissions (a groovy sink being done recently) and merchandising items like coasters and folders.

We cannot wait until Kelly Atkins and her Carpet-Burns begin to list stockist on their site!!!
