There seems to be no end to the Autumn Projects to do. I hope you will consider joining us next month.

Rag rugs, mats & carpets

Sometimes it's hard to be precise about the history and origins of simple domestic crafts and equipment. Writers weren't usually interested in recording the details of everyday housekeeping and low-status domestic crafts until the 19th century. Even then we have limited descriptions of rag rug making before about 1900.

Rag rugs really took off in the 19th century with machine production of cloth. Spinning and weaving were no longer hand crafts, but industrial processes, and fabric was produced in much greater quantity than before. The use of wood pulp instead of cotton rags for paper-making also helped make more used clothing available for rug-making.
