Design Sleuth: Recycled Jersey Bath Mat at West Elm

Sarah Lonsdale November 11, 2011

In England, the centuries-old tradition of making "clippy mats" from strips of re-purposed cotton is making a comeback ("the ultimate eco-friendly use of cast-off clothing and fabric leftovers," the Guardian says. "Originally they had no such pretensions, they were simply the only way in which the cash-strapped could create a floor covering for otherwise bare boards or stone-flagged cottage floors"). West Elm has picked up on the trend with the Recycled Jersey Bath Mat, available in jet black or white.
