Tambour Hook

A tambour hook is a very fine hook housed in a wooden or metal handle, which is used to create a chain stitch while working tambour embroidery or tambour lace. In India, tambour embroidery is called ari embroidery and is carried out with an ari hook, which is comparable, but not identical to a tambour hook. The technique of creating the chain stitch is the same.
