Rag rugs or rag mats are hardwearing rugs made out of rags cut into strips and pushed or pulled through a hessian backing.
There are two kinds of mat, known as hooky and proggy mats.
Hooky mats are made with the right side of the mat facing, pulling through long strips of material with a hook.
Proggy mats are made with the wrong side of the mat facing and short bits of fabric are prodded through, creating a thick rug.
