Roger Oates Stair carpets and runners are warm and inviting. They are 100% wool and add that welcoming touch you desire to your hall and/or stairway

Roger Oates

Roger and Fay Oates have been designing and hand producing their uniquely smart, simple and classic pure wool Venetian Flatweave rugs and runners for over twenty years.

When Roger and Fay first discovered a nineteenth century flatweave fragment in the late 1980s, they set out to reintroduce and reinvent this flooring, woven in such a way as to be utterly authentic and true to the art of weaving, yet completely grounded in chic twenty-first century taste. Designs are originated and coloured by both Fay and Roger and the production process is run by craftsmen who finish by hand.

Roger and Fay's combined eye for colour mixed with practicality and their own standards of excellence, has taken a historic flatweave from being a relatively humble floor covering to being considered today's must-have design staple for floors and stairs in this country and across Europe, Scandinavia, North America and Australia.

  • Fabrics - Fabrics in cotton, linen and silk featuring Roger Oates’ trademark stripes. Woven textures from sophisticated neutrals through fresh aqua to rich jewel shades.
  • Runners for Stairs and Halls - Our Flatweave runners are woven and hand finished in the UK using traditional techniques.  Warm and inviting, our 100% wool runners add the perfect welcoming touch to your hall and stairway. The narrow width floorcovering comes in a Flatweave or Wilton quality.  The nature of the weave gives the designs added texture and the suppleness means that they can be fitted on almost any staircase - straight or winding.  A selection of our runners have a complementary ‘border’ and ‘ground’ design which can be used together on staircases and landings.
  • Stair Rods and Brackets
  • New & Special Collections - Roger Oates' Special Collections for stairs and halls use exclusive fibre blends in small quantities and limited editions.  Real Shetland Wool Collection -  An Eco range of classic flatweaves using real Shetland wool. Woven in six natural un-dyed shades ranging from cream to black. The new Broadcloth designs contains a thin stripe of dyed Shetland yarn.  Wilton Runner Collection - 100% pure wool Wiltons feature geometric patterns and a stylised simple floral design. A borderless stripe completes the selection.  Gold Dust - Subtly glamorous Venetian flatweave with a hint of metallic thread, available in two designs: Orion a runner with bands of gold and Sirius a herringbone weave with an all over Midas touch.  British Cheviot Collection - Roger Oates’ new collection uses a British Cheviot wool blend yarn created specially for an edited group of flatweave flooring designs. Cheviot wool has been an inspiration for the spring and strength it brings to the flatweave textiles.
  • Rugs - Rugs can be more versatile than fixed floorcoverings, they are the perfect way to soften polished wood floors, adding balance and warmth to any room.  Hand finished by fine craftsmen, our Flatweave rugs and runners are woven in the UK using traditional techniques.  Our extensive collection of runner designs can be sewn together to create original bespoke rugs or used simply as a narrow width in hallways.  Rugs can be created using large scale pattern which is bold and dramatic or small fine lines which form subtle texture.  Linen binding tapes provide a classic finishing touch whereas a simple blind hem gives a clean contemporary edge.  Our sumptuously soft Tapis D'Avignon felt rugs are effortlessly stylish.  The heavily felted Mouflon wool is available in a wide choice of colours ranging from neutral to vibrant tones.  The rugs are joined and edged with a decorative blanket stitch which can contrast or subtly blend with the Tapis colour.
