These rugs have been hooked by hand in the traditional manner using a simple wooden-handled hook. 
They are made of strong 3-ply rug wool yarn that is pulled up loop-by-loop through a foundation of linen. Many of the yarns have been hand-dyed.


 The patterns for these rugs have been inspired and created from ethnic floral designs and old textiles. They honor the artistic life and tradition of a variety of countries.  In this way, they bring us closer to other cultures and times.

Prices are listed below the rugs that are for sale. Please contact Margaret Arraj.
