Everybody knows the feeling of that favourite piece of clothing that is too old to wear, but you just cannot get rid off it, because it holds so many memories. 

Of course, I wouldn't just cut up pieces that were dear to me. No, they became the ingredients of a very special object: my Carpet of Life.
