Green, Pink & Tan Woven Rug, 31" x 55"
"TSDesigns: printing t-shirts for good" is headquartered not too far from my home. A few years ago, I collected a truckload of t-shirt scrap from the factory. After sorting and processing, the scrap starred in several of my woven rugs.
The green and beige stripes are cotton t-shirt fabric; the pink stripes are from discarded sheets and may be cotton-poly blend.
31" x 55"
This rug is woven in a 2/2 broken twill (all the strength of a twill (denim) without the obvious diagonal lines). The black warp is protected by the weft.
The rug is as thick as "Springtime," the rug shown below with 8 US quarters for reference.
The t-shirt factory has since changed it dye process and no longer produces scrap like this. All cotton.
All of my twill rugs are robust. As proof, note that they will stand alone when rolled. Many ordinary handwoven rugs will not stand on their own like this.
