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. Trace patterns are also available for many rugs. Please contact Margaret Arraj.
