Vintage Hooked Runner BB3585


A mid 20th century Hooked runner, with alternating purple and beige tiles containing red floral motifs.

As soon as people learned how to weave fabric for miscellaneous purposes, vintage area rugs and carpets were born and have accompanied our civilization ever since as perfect warmth bringers and space definers. Professional antique rug weavers created awe-inspiring pieces intended for crowned heads and the wealthy part of the society, however countrymen and poverty also took a huge part in the development of rug-making.

The arcana of doing domestic chores by our ancestors are very often shrouded in mystery because the chroniclers were not especially eager to describe mundane details of everyday life, at least not until the19th century. Finding evidence on the origins of hooked rugs and rag rugs presents certain difficulties not only because there are few written records, but also because they were not precious fabrics hung on walls, but utilitarian objects which were thrown out after being worn out. Nevertheless, rag rugs and hooked rugs have been an important part of all households, wealthy and poor alike.
