There's no denying it—we've all heard of Fyre Festival. The failure of the would-be music festival set on a private island in the Bahamas made headlines in spring 2017 when it didn't quite live up to the expectations it so ambitiously marketed to people. The spectacle called for not one, but two documentaries being made about the fiasco.

While the festival that wasn't continues to grab headlines, a graphic designer who worked on the project is trying to move past it, launching his own home line. As People reported, Oren Aks—the co-founder and creative director of Jerry Media, and also the creative director for the Fyre Festival's marketing—has partnered with luxury brand The Knot Collective, designing a bunch of high-end rugs made entirely from plastic waste.

The Knot Collective is a company that creates limited-edition rugs, all woven from 100 percent recycled plastic yarn and designed exclusively by some of the world's most renowned artists. Their main mission is to push the boundaries of rug design and turn wasteful products into works of art. They also donate a portion of each rug sale to Goodweave, a charitable organization that's main goal is to rescue children sold into slave labor.
