Handmade Rug from the Mezcal Agave Fibers

This project grows from the idea of turning the wasted agave leaves that result from the production of Mezcal, into beautiful rugs. Trine Ellitsgaard, having profound knowledge of both the land of Oaxaca and the world of weaving, found a way to spin these fibers and weave with them to make fantastic pieces of design. Each of these pieces is then part of a virtuous cycle of turning a problem into an opportunity, and turning waste into beautiful, timeless objects of design.
