The history of rugs in America is extensive; however, hooked rugs and Navajo rugs are categorized with the American rug design. Pioneers working with limited resources created hooked rugs in the 17th century. The rugs continued to be prevalent through the 19th century. The design motifs on early American hooked rugs were diverse, consisting primarily of geometric patterns, floral designs, landscapes, seascapes and animals. No matter what the design scheme, hooked rugs displayed a great sense of individual expression. Abrash. Hand-Hooked Wool. Made in America. Measures: 08'09" X 11'10".
