Spring crafting

Purchase your very own Lavender Rag Rug making kit from Upton Stores

Purchase your very own Lavender Rag Rug making kit from Upton Stores

Upton Stores now stocks Lavender Rag Rug making kits.  During the war, rag rugs were not only fun to make but were also cheap and warm. In a time of 'make do and mend', households recycled old shirts, socks, sheets, and, well, anything you could cut into strips! The strips were then braided, hooked, or pulled to make a variety of unique rugs for the home.

Take home a kit and have a go yourself!
