Rug, by Anne Kelly
Add to album

This wool and nylon rug was made by the artist Anne Kelly in 1987.

The square rug has a design based on fossils and Islamic patterns. It was made using a hand tufting method, on polyester backing cloth with hessian secondary backing.

During the 1980s the Scottish Development Agency purchased a number of hand-crafted items for its Scottish Crafts Collection. The aim of the collection was to inform the public of craft production in Scotland through touring exhibitions and education programmes. When the Scottish Craft Council was wound up, the collection was transferred to the National Museums of Scotland.
