With some patience and a little skill, Daventry homes have been furnished using scrap materials. Rag rugs and patchwork quilts have been a traditional recycling craft for generations. Old clothes and bits of fabric were cut up into strips and pushed through canvas with wooden pegs to create cosy rugs such as this one. Perfect for a cold winter’s night by the coal fire.
