nuLOOM Shanna Shaggy Rug in White | Bed Bath & Beyond

High pile carpets are perfect for the kitchen or bathroom, and it's also easy to make your own carpets, provided you have the materials you need to get the job done.

The only thing you need is:

  • Old cotton t-shirts with different shades
  • A cutting board
  • Rotary cutter
  • Teppichmatte
  • Chop chopsticks

The function of the carpet mat is to prevent the carpet from slipping. You must therefore make sure that you choose a carpet with large holes, as this will make the job easier.

The chopping board and rotary cutters help you to cut the cotton T-shirts into the required strips, and they facilitate and speed up the cutting process.


Cut off the hems, shoulders and sleeves of the cotton t-shirts and throw them away, cut thin straight strips and finally cut each strip into four pieces.

Use a chopstick to slide the pieces of fabric from the edge of the mat into position and make sure you are working from the back of the carpet. Slide the other end of the pieces of fabric into a hole in the mat, skipping a hole. Repeat the process over and over until you get the size you want.

The next step is to turn the carpet mat over and tie the ends together with a single knot, but make sure you alternate each knot so that the left falls over the right and vice versa. This creates a flawless, shaggy carpet.

Tie each of the pieces together at random and mix different colors to get a nice and neat finish. Fold the edges of the mat to the back of the carpet and in any case hold it with tape with it in place. This is one of the amazing ways you can create a creation that fits your kitchen or bathroom decoration.

Alternatively, you can buy the required fabrics in the shops and follow the same steps to make your own shaggy rug. The advantage of shaggy rugs is that they are easy to fit into your home and do not require much attention during care. In addition, with shaggy rugs, you can choose any color or hue to create a stunning, unique look in your own home. Shaggy is about playing around with what you need to create something glamorous and unique.
