Carpet Rug Beater

Carpet Rug Beater


A carpet / rug beater made in the traditional 'sun' shape from rattan reed. 

A Mattenklopper, as the Dutch call it (what a delightful word!) is a traditional household tool in common use before the introduction of vacuum cleaners. Rugs and bedding were hung over a washing line and whipped with the carpet beater to get the dust out. These days the vacuum cleaner meets most of our carpet cleaning needs, though a carpet beater is still a very useful tool for removing dirt from rugs.

Size: 75cm

Material: Rattan Reed
