I was just growing through the internet and saw an interesting topic related to rug hooking which is both an art and craft where rugs are made by pulling of loops of yarn or fabric through a stiff woven base such as linen or burlap and they are pulled through the backing material by using a hook mounted in the handle for leverage and ease. It is an ancient art and has been practiced for many hundred years. There are traditional rug makers even now in the parts of Asia, Turkey and is possible to visit them even today. If one would like to know about and practice rug hooking then there are various styles to choose from between them. There is the primitive style which is very easier to learn and the finished products are of high quality and simple designs are ideal for home use. One can create to incorporate geometric designs such as squares, circles, diamonds and other shapes. The finished product of an experienced rug maker will look the product realistic and will appear life like. The designs for rugs are mostly commercially produced and can also be complex as flowers or animals. Just visit this site for more information.
