Domestitchery – Fur Rugs by Agustina Woodgate


Domestitchery is  where we take a look at how talented people make ordinary domestic items extraordinary through creative needlework, but today we’re looking at how talented people use creative needle work to make stitchery of extraordinary domestic items.

TheMistressT hasn’t spent nearly the time she’d like to have searching the internet for wondrous things to share and so begged the help of Beefranck, our Editor-in-Chief, who is widely accepted as “no slouch” when it comes to internet searching.  While she waited for a reply, TheMistressT sipped delicately at her espresso and answered her other email correspondence.  It wasn’t long before the reply came, bringing relief and, at first, disbelief.

Agustina Woodgate hand sews these colorful rugs from recycled animal skins.

TheMistressT is an animal lover and an art lover, so she was both appalled and fascinated.  She was also unsure about presenting these works until she realized that in the few minutes between requesting help and receiving it she’s typed these words to a friend on another topic altogether:

Any idea or thing that no one thinks is odd isn’t even the slightest bit interesting and that is a fact.  If everyone likes something, then it’s probably no good.”

TheMistressT doesn’t have a lot to offer you, but Agustina Woodgate has a lot to say about this work and you can read it here.

TheMistressT is so glamorous she cries glitter tears.  Her mottoes include “any excuse for a costume” and “there’s no such thing as too much carpincho.”

    This is crazy T! I just ran across the second rug today online, but I couldn’t find any info on the artist! Thank you for another great article!

  • I read your statement that these were made from recylcled animal skins and was horrified. Then I read the artist’s website and realized it is recycled STUFFED animal skins- huge difference and not nearly as creepy lol.
