I've always believed in the power and comfort of making things with my hands. I love making hooked rugs -- they give warmth, beauty and excitement to a home. I'm happy to be able to bring these good things to you.
I've been making hooked rugs for well over 10 years. Many of my rugs are commissioned pieces made to reflect images that have special meaning for my clients. My work has been featured in The New York Times, Early American Life, Early Homes, and others.
My rugs are found in city apartments as well as country houses. The primitive quality gives them a great deal of freedom in color, imagery and intention. They are displayed both on the wall, table or bed, as well as the traditional place -- the floor. Take a look on this page that shows my rugs in my collectors’ homes.
Every rug I make is unique. At my studio there's no production line or repetition of popular pieces. The beauty of that aspect of my handmade work is that your rug will be the only one like it in the world, worthy of preserving for future generations.
Here’s my Instagram feed. You can find me at anniehayeshookedrugs. Mostly rugs either in progress or finished, shots of my studio, and my house in the Northern Catskill Mountains.
