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 vintage area 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 antique area rugs have been an important part of all households, wealthy and poor alike.
