Is it a strip of carpet track, for holding carpet edges in place?

Hi Garry,

You are on the right lines in a way but nothing to do with carpet.

Is it for holding wool or another type of animal skin on the wall?

So it's not to hold fruit or veg nor are the hooks there to hold a fence mesh - although these are all good guesses.

Think about hooks and a saying in English (sorry to all the none native English speakers) and you may get the name. Then you just need the purpose (which is easy with the name, just Google).

Here is a another view revealing a bit more..

Darn, this is a good one, quite hard.
Are they to hold a flag or banner?
