From Floors to Fruit Bowls

We've been emailing back and forth with Kelly Atkins of Carpet Burns for a year, but we finally got to meet her at the annual CARE conference. Her company transforms old axminister carpet into a heat treated product and sells it by the sheet... a brainwave that came to her when she, still a university student, accidentally 'heat treated' the carpet in her apartment while ironing clothes on the floor (lucky oops). Their product been used as hard flooring, to create Wilton treys and handbags, and on and on... see some of the design objects and accessories she initially created to sell at the Chelsea Craft Fair.

Our blog is mostly about sustainable design in the interiors industry,
especially carpet. Sometimes it's just about us. Updated when we've got something good to say.
