We Make Carpets is a group founded by three designers from the Netherlands: Bob Waardenburg, Marcia Nolte and Stijn van der Vleuten. Unsurprisingly, they make carpets. What is surprising though, is the wide range of materials they use to make them. Their past designs have included large-scale carpets made out of clothes pegs, plastic forks, medical tape, paperclips, toy soldiers, pasta, bricks and balloons. Currently, their three carpets made using clothes pegs are hanging in the Graphic Design Museum in Breda, the Netherlands.
