Woven Carpet Made From Recycled Cigarette Stubs

As you can see in the above image, it is not that easy to make out whether the woven carpet utilizes standard textile or is an outcome of an artistís painstaking efforts. Spotted at the Sharjah Biennale, the carpet created by a Puerto Rican artist, Jesus Bubu Negron utilizes numerous yellow and white cigarette stubs.

Asking the street cleaners to collect used cigarette butts for his piece of art, the latter showed exceptional skills in sieving and hooking these butts up to create the woven carpet. The carpet utilizes the paper of the cigarettes unrolled and layered on top of each other.
