King of Hearts
I don’t have a full picture of this but it is a pantyhose rug.
Curious: Did the King of Hearts look like a one-off custom rug or a homemade project or was it something commercially made?
It was a handmade project by the owner. She bought the kit and made the rug. Except it is not really a rug it is a wall hanging. It would go great there in Vegas.
We get strange rugs more and more often. Any kind of shag fiber, from cut-out shapes in felt to rayon upholstered rubbers tubes, to fist-sized “pillow” tufts made of fuzzy polyester. One of the most odd is the tufted rug made out of silk neckties.
Bryan do you have any photos of those to show us.
We had a multi colored poly pillow rug in the shop a few months back. Very interesting. Thanks for sharing
My favorite. Artist makes a form for the head out of clay and attaches felt cut-outs to a backing.
Rubber square cross section tufts wrapped with rayon fabric
poly pillows and cotton ribbons.
this is the unspun wool “maggot” style.
Whole internet full of wonder out there… I keep being drawn back to the weird-carpet photo gallery being built here.
