Rug Making

Tools and supplies for traditional and contemporary rug making.
The tradition of making rag mats isn't unique to the North East of the UK but the terms hooky and proggy are. They are also known as clippy mats, proddy mats and peg rugs, for example.
Like many crafts, mat-making was originally born out of necessity, but today is very much about the pleasure of making and the growing interest in recycling.If you want to know more about hooky and proddy rug making techniques take a look at the Shipley Art Gallery website here -
