The Agustina Woodgate rug collection features hand-sewn designs made from recycled stuffed animals. The process starts by rescuing discarded teddy bears, cutting them open and then stitching their parts into intricate arrangements. The Argentinian artist's aim is to not only to act as a reference to the “personal histories of the toy's owners, but investigate the rug as an object organizing and displaying memories and lineages.” The results are these beautiful, colorful and plush floor coverings by Agustina Woodgate.
