Attention Rock Climbers: Don't throw your old climbing ropes away! Instead, hand them over to the guys at Buddha Rugs and they'll turn your old, tired and probably unsafe to climb on any longer rope into a beautiful and functional rug. I had the privilege of hanging out with Jason and Brian, the guys behind Buddha rugs a few weekends back for Arkansas Wild Magazine. It was an eye opening experience, both from the education I received about the sport of rock climbing and from seeing the engineering and craftsmanship with which these two design and construct their rugs. What started as a small hobby and a way to give new life to retired climbing rope has turned into a small business that seems to be growing. Here are a few images from my time with Jason and Brian. Be sure to check out their full story in the upcoming issue of Arkansas Wild Magazine. Cheers.
