Denim jeans are tough and durable but they don't last forever. The volunteers at MCC* Connections in Kidron, Ohio, recycle old jeans by making denim rugs after the knees wear out.

*Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) is a non-profit organization that helps people in need in America and around the world. If you want to help, you can send old jeans (100 percent cotton denim only) to: (US Mail) MCC Connections, PO Box 19, Kidron, OH 44636; (UPS/FedEX) MCC Connections, 4080 Kidron Road, Dalton, OH 44618
Just down the road from Lehman's, you'll find the hardworking volunteers of MCC Connections. Recycling old donated jeans, they weave the denim by hand on a vintage two-harness loom, turning out these gorgeous rugs. They use every single inch of the jeans they can salvage.
