A History of British Rag Rugs 93.99 KB - There are two traditional methods recognised in Britain for making rugs from waste fabric and hessian, hooky and proddy. Proddy has many different names but produces a shaggy pile most suited to abstract designs while hooky results in a smooth surface and is often used for pictorial designs. The techniques are well-known but their origins in Britain are unclear and there are few published accounts. The following paper explores new thinking about the origins and history of this little known craft. Do you want to download or read a ebook? It is available in PDF or epub format in the source
