During a trip to Turkey, Swedish architects Jenny Askenfors and Sofia Ehrengren got a better appreciation of the labor-intensive process of rug-making as well as a glimpse into a new trend in which antique rugs are cut up to make patchwork rugs. Their admiration and respect for traditional craftsmanship led them to create RugCycle , a company whose goal is to repurpose antique rugs while keeping them intact. Their second collection, a collaboration with Linda Lindorff, is a homage to the Swedish rag rug; vintage rag rugs have been rescued and carefully stitched together.
