Hand hooked rugs are great for all levels of traffic and a popular choice for a children’s room or a lovely addition to a formal dining room. Hand-hooked rugs quickly add character to any space at a reasonable price. They are made with a variety of patterns and colors as well as pile height. Hooked in an array of fibers including wool, cotton, and synthetics, a rug pad is recommended for to allow air to circulate and keep your rug from sliding.
For storage purposes, hand hooked rugs should not be folded. They should be rolled lightly with the pile side out and should never be wrapped in plastic to avoid trapping moisture which may lead to mildew. Wrap them in clean white cotton and store in a dry place.
When vacuuming a hand hooked rug, you should not use the beater brush, instead use a handheld vacuum. Immersing hand hooked rugs in water may cause the backings to fall apart. Blot out all stains with dry cloth. Consult a professional rug cleaner for any questions or complete cleaning advice on hand-hooked rugs.
