Check out the Bicicleta Rug by Nanimarquina, two Barcelona based designers, Nani Marquina and Ariadna Miquel. The rug is hand loomed from rubber bicycle tubes. With a tag line like, "Recycle yourself. It's never too late," what's not to admire? Plus the company is also affiliated with Care & Fair, an organization that combats child labor by building and maintaining schools, kindergardens, apprenticeships and hospitals for basic medical treatment in the carpet centres of India, Nepal and Pakistan.
