Annie Hayes Studio

Thanks so much for visiting my site of handmade primitive hooked rugs. 

 

I've always believed in the power and comfort of making things with my hands. I love making rugs -- they give warmth, beauty and excitement to a home. I'm happy to be able to bring these good things to you.

 

About the Studio

I've been designing and making hooked rugs for well over 10 years. My work has been featured in a number of places, including The New York Times, Early American Life, Early Homes, and others. I often give workshops both locally and nationally, and love bringing people into this wonderful craft.

The Versatility of Hooked Rugs

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. 

One-of-a-Kind Work

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.
