Hooked area rugs are made by pulling loops of fabric through a stiff woven base with a crochet-type hook. These rugs resemble crocheting or quilting, with a loop-pile surface and rounded, 3-dimensional look. Antique handmade hooked rugs, in particular, are quite artistic.

Hooked rugs from the 1850s were created with burlap or any available material. Yarn was rare and reserved for knitting and weaving. The use of scrap fabric evolved, and hooked rugs became easier and more available. By the 1920s, material for hooked rugs improved in quality. These rugs were more decorative and less a floor covering.
Today’s hooked rugs still use the same pull-and-loop method but by machine or hand. Machine made is less costly and more common.
D-I-Y cleaning for hooked rugs is never recommended. Rely on The Rug Specialists instead, especially for antique or heirloom hooked rugs to preserve their vintage appearance as much as possible. We'll make sure hooked rug fabrics, dyes, textures and fibers receive the utmost care.
