Eton and Sëbou Transform Upcycled Fabric into Handmade Rugs
Fashion and interiors collaborate yet again. Eton, a Swedish maker of stylish men’s shirts, and Scandi-Moroccan textile company Sëbou are upcycling rolls of sample fabrics used in the development of Eton clothing into the Eton x Sëbou collection of handmade rugs. Each roll consists of over 1,000 color and pattern combinations that are shredded into long fabric pieces and hand-knotted in Morocco to form unique rugs. Sëbou already purchases scrap fabric in bulk from Ghana, Morocco, and Sweden for its existing Cherouitte line. “Our focus has always been to make one-of-a-kind, timeless pieces from recycled materials,” Sëbou creative director Omar Marhri says. Now, Eton has a hand in sustainability, too.
