Rug Making at St Dunstan's

Blind veterans designed and produced intricate rugs.

Rug making

Rug making was another trade that was taught to blind veterans who received support from St Dunstan's, now Blind Veterans UK.

The Netting Department was extended to include rug making where cable and turkey wool rugs with the most elaborate designs were produced.

Although rug making was not the most ideal career in terms of financial prospects, it was useful for the blind veterans who were also severely disabled and didn't want to take up the more complex crafts.
