From high shag to low loops, there’s a rug for any space.

T-rrific Rugs
When Debby Allen’s son left for college, he also left behind the typical teenage detritus—including a closet packed full of his old T-shirts. Instead of donating or just dumping them, this crafty Seattle mom upcycled. Allen’s T-shirt rugs (made from repurposed cotton jersey tees) can now be found at the eco-craft-centric shop NuBe Green. Priced from $38 for a “6-tee” rug (about 30 inches long) to $110 for an “18-tee” rug (about 50 inches long), each boasts a cheery, one-of-a-kind color scheme.
