Irish Rug Hooks

Rug hooks ( or Hookies as the maker calls them ), are made in Ireland one hook at a time. Beautifully hand crafted out of Yew wood and brass. If you could hold one in your hand you would know how lovely they are.


These are truly a dream to work with. They immediately feel like they belong in your hand like no other hook you have held. The pear handle is just a wider shaped handle. The ergo handle has a slight indentation for your hand to rest on. The pencil hooks are longer and slimmer. The curved hooks are just that- curved hook with varying handles to suit your needs. The ball hooks are the original style hook with a larger, shorter handle to grip. Shafts are 1.5 - 2 inches in length.


My personal preferences are the pencil hook and the ball hook. This maker is a dear man and is now in business with his son. Once you try one you will never hook with another hook again . I have fallen in love with these beautiful hooks and I hope you will too. Formally known as Hartman Hooks, now known as The Irish Hook.
