Glorious Roger Oates Stair Runners
The combination of a classic wood staircase with glorious Roger Oates stair runners – what can we say that the photograph doesn’t?
Roger and Fay Morgan Oates began designing and hand-producing flatweave rugs and runners over 30 years ago. The reinvention of the Venetian Flatweave process led to a series of creative experiments with colour, pattern and texture that now number more than 100 individual designs currently in production. This truly British product has become a design classic, furnishing floors and stairs not only in the UK but also across the globe..
They (Roger Oates) say:
“The classic collections of signature stripes remain central to our ethos of artisan products, created with care on power looms and checked by hand throughout the process. Our distinctive rugs and runners are made from a British Cheviot wool blend that’s spun and dyed in Yorkshire. The weaving takes place in the UK on specially adapted narrow-width looms to create rugs and runners with clean woven edges. All finishing is then done by hand at our workshop in Herefordshire.”
