Hand hooked rug cleaning and repair


Hand hooked rug cleaning and repair projects are among my favorite.  Above is a picture of one such hand hooked rug I recently worked on.  The round motifs lend the rug a fun, almost 1960s feel, but the black background give it a rich, nuanced, almost luxurious feel.  The solid colored motifs also allow the fantastic abrash (the color variations in the yarn) to shine through proving yet once again that nothing beats hand made rugs - whether they're hand knotted, hand woven, or hand hooked - handmade rugs are all works of art. -- www.traditionalrugrepair.com
