Hooked on Rugs

American Hooked Rugs

The art & craft of rug hooking originated in England in the 19th century. Weaving mill workers collected the useless left over pieces of yarn, which were about 9 inches long  They took these “thrums” home and used them to create rugs. Thus began rug hooking which then became popular in America about 1830.  Those who could not afford carpet gathered scraps of materials to make floor coverings.  Today fine antique hooked rugs are highly collectible and are recognized as a unique folk art.
