Comparison of Modern and Vintage Hooked Rugs

Rug hooking has a very special place in the hearts of Americans. This craft accompanied the country through the years of its development and even today remains a powerful statement about North America's past. The process of weaving is a simple one: it starts by pulling loops of yarn through a stiff base, usually made of burlap or rug warp and then pulled by the loops through the backing material.
