Description: A woven (twined) rag rug of multicoloured stripe design. History: Originally from Lunenburg County, Nova Scotia. A drugget, from the French drouget, meaning 'trash', is a coarse durable woven cloth used chiefly as a floor covering or a protective covering over a more expensive carpet. These are often made from wool formerly used as clothing. A drugget has a cotton warp and a wool filling. REF: Webster's Ninth New Collegiate Dictionary, by Merriam Webster1991, p. 385.
