Stripes are an extremely versatile pattern for use with carpet, especially stair runners. They provide elegant simplicity as well as a classical feel and will stand the test of time.
Roger Oates Design make some of the very best striped flatweave rugs and runners that you will find.
I have been working in the carpet trade for more than 40 years and I still enjoy discovering all about new carpets, manufacturers and inspirational flooring ideas.
Recently I spent a day with the team at Roger Oates Design at their factory in Herefordshire. I learnt about how they install their beautiful, hand-woven wool carpet – it was an amazing experience! They are all made as runners of 2/3 widths, are hand-finished and the weaving is carried out on specially-adapted narrow width looms.
If you have a curved staircase, the Roger Oates Design stair runners are a perfect choice. The flatweave design ensures that all of the stripes are kept in line, very difficult to achieve with a normal stair runner.
There are other differences, too.
A special type of gripper is used with a combination of an underlay; rubber crumb on the bottom and wool felt on the top. The runner is glued to the underlay; this enables it to be manoeuvred whilst still malleable and allows us to keep the borders and stripes carefully in line.
I thoroughly enjoyed my day at Roger Oates Design. The team can make carpet to any size you want – you can even have it wall to wall!
