Overdyed Re-vive Carpets by rENs & Desso

Dutch design duo rENs & Desso present “Re-vive Carpets,” an initiative to up-cylce outdated designer rugs. Using carpets that would otherwise end up in the dump, r&D envision a business model “where goods are made to be made again.” They use a hand-“overdyeing” process that creates colorful gradients, from red, blue and yellow to combinations of different hues. The rugs go from merely usable to truly and beautifully revived. Watch the video below.
