RUGMAKING: Punching & Hooking

Punching, Hooking: a word about the difference. Both techniques produce the same finished rug surface. Punching (or tufting) punches loops down into a canvas backing. Hooking pulls loops up through the backing. Punch from the back, hook from the front. Either way, the yarn is continuous, so the pile is composed of loops.

Has a wooden handle.
Latch Hooking produces a cut-piled surface on a woven backing, using separate pre-cut lengths of yarn, knotted into the mesh of the backing the resulting pile is made of little tufts, with cut ends, rather than loops. Our latch hook has a wooden handle, 7" long.
Locker Hooking is a less well-known technique from Australia. Uses a special hook to make a series of loops that are then locked in placed by a strand on the surface of the backing. Can be done with unspun fiber, yarn, rags. Our looker hook is nickel-plated.
