One day, his flight was delayed and he sat staring at the carpet in the airport waiting area. It was here, as he watched the patterns leap from the carpet, that he decided to create his website, Carpets for Airports.

Carpets for Airports features snapshots of carpets from around the world, thanks to the help of ‘Carpeteers’ (a.k.a. passengers with access to a camera).

“Carpets for Airports has over 100 carpets online and about 200 more waiting to be cataloged,” said Pendle, the self-described CEO and summer intern of the website.
