Traditional willow clothes pegs, fastened with tin metal
Did you known that
"A traditional occupation associated with Gypsy Travellers has been the production of clothes pegs. Pegs were traditionally made from willow, a material which was plentiful and easy to work. The bark was removed, the branch was cut to size and a band was placed around the top before the willow was split. The split willow kept the clothes on the line."
