Teddy Bear Skin Rugs

4

By Agustina Woodgate.

From her website: "Hand-sewn rugs made from recycled stuffed animal skins. The process starts with the departure of the loving life objects had when they are in the hands of their owners.The rugs not only reference the personal histories of the toys' owners, but also investigate the rug as an object organizing and displaying memories and lineages. In Eastern cultures, the oriental rug centralizes the living space in pattern, operating beyond utility to depict the spiritual and mental world in woven form."
