What is rug hooking?
Rug hooking is both an art and a craft of creating rugs by pulling strips of wool through a stiff woven backing such as linen. A crochet-type hook is used to pull these strips through the base material, therefore the name “rug hooking”. There’s also the latch hooking technique that differs from traditional rug hooking by the physical knotting of the yarn or fabric to canvas.
What initially began as practically a necessity has now turned into a creative hobby, a form of home art, and a self-care activity. During the past decades, it has switched from being a craft of the poor into an art form. More and more crafters around the globe are using a rug hooking kit to create art by hand and unwind after a long day.
Rug hooking has been present for at least 200 years all across the world. It has been particularly popular in North America, while its beginnings trace back to the 19th century in England where early forms of this craft were adopted. Weaving mills workers were allowed to use leftover materials from the mills called thrums (pieces of yarn that ran 23cm long). Since these by-products were practically useless, the workers brought them home to use for their own needs. By pulling the thrums through a backing, they were able to create rugs for themselves. This simple form of home craft evolved later on and became a popular trend in North America as well as other parts of the world. Through material and technique exploration, rug hooking was able to grow into the exciting, modern art form that it is today.
