Traditional rug hooking is both an art and a craft where rugs are made by pulling loops of yarn or fabric through a stiff woven base such as burlap, linen, or rug warp. The loops are pulled through the backing material by using a crochet-type hook with a wooden handle for leverage.
Wool strips ranging in widths from 3/32” to 10/32” are used to create hooked items.These precision strips are cut using a mechanical cloth slitter.
The rug is then steamed and raw edges are finished off with binding, fabric or wool whip stitches.
