description
In order not to wear out the clothes by daily brushing, the dust can be knocked out. This was done with a wicker clothes beater (1), comparable to the carpet beater, or a kind of whip with mostly leather straps, which also served to knock out cushions.

See also the clothes brush. [MOT]

(1) Translation of the dutch word 'kleerklopper'. The proper name in english is yet unknown.
