In this post, I’m talking about the color of a green rug, rather than “green” the state of being one with the environment, although all of my rugs fall into that category, too. Green recycled fiber ranges from the most acid lime to the kindest, most muted tone of moss in the northern (and southern) latitudes, blending nearly seamlessly into gray and brown, or contrasting vividly with almost any other color on the wheel.
I like green. Green is easy to find in the world of recycled fiber, but because it is not a primary color, it’s important to be careful about its undertones. Warm greens and cool greens can surprise me, and need to be sorted in natural daylight, not under any form of artificial light. Green rugs can be used in any room in the home, and most of the time, blend easily with existing color choices.
Here are some green rugs that have found homes:
Any of these can be used as starting points for a rug made to your specifications. However, because the rugs are made from recycled tshirts (among other fabrics), they can never be exactly duplicated.
