American Rugs as Important Folk Art in 20th Century
It wasn’t until the dawn of the 20th century that the craft of making American vintage area rugs started to be considered important folk art and spread all over the country, becoming one of the favorite pastimes of housewives, as well as the object of interest of renowned artists. Certainly, classic carpets have also quite early began to be produced in the United States. The vogue for floor coverings came around 1830 when factories started making machine-woven American antique kilim rugs for the rich and wealthy. However, the hooked carpets and rag rags, along with the creations by Native Americans, such as Navajo rugs, are today synonymous with wool hooked rugs rather than any other type.
