Inexpensive Backing for a Latch Look Rug?

I just received materials for a latch hook rug, so I am basically starting from scratch. What is a simple, budget-wise, non-stick backing for it?

I have made a lot of latch hook rugs, but not for use on the floor. We have always used them as wall hangings. I have also given some as gifts, and I don't know how the people chose to use them.

Consider using burlap. It's fairly inexpensive and it isn't made to be "pretty", it's made to be sturdy.

It's been many years, but I used to go to a carpet store and find a jar of this stuff like rubber cement which I would brush onto the back of the hooked rug and it would dry to be kind of rubbery. It worked very well.

I've read that a non-skid back can be made by "painting "on sealant that you'd normally use for cracks or adhering smooth materials together. It comes in a tube that you use w/ a caulking gun. Its pretty cheap too. I plan on trying it as a slip-less bottom for fleece slipper socks I make.
