A distinctive texture and unique colour palette have firmly placed Roger Oates as a market leader in luxury flooring; furnishing the halls, stairs and landings of discerning homeowners across the globe.
The versatility of flatweave
With an intrinsic suppleness and a beautifully natural woven edge, flatweave can be installed on both straight and winding staircases as well as hand joined for landing areas and bespoke rugs.
Sewing is undertaken by a team of skilled craftspeople at their Herefordshire workshop to fit to the dimensions of your home and adapt to the specifics of the project. A number of complementary ‘ground’ designs work effectively when joined to achieve a subtle neutral back-drop for larger areas. These can be fitted alongside a bordered stair runner to create cohesion throughout different areas of the home.
Eye-catching rugs create an impression in every room, whether finished with a complementary tonal linen binding for a smart framed edge or a simple turned under false selvedge to achieve a contemporary look.
A specialist weaving process
Production takes place in small scale mills where the runners are woven on specially adapted traditional shuttle looms using a centuries old weaving process. Each loom is operated by a skilled weaver and the complex drafting and lifting technique creates the weave structure that gives the cloth its distinctive personality and ‘hand-finished’ quality.
Roger Oates Collections
The Anniversary Collection
To celebrate 30 years of their classic flatweave, the latest collection by Roger Oates Design is inspired by exploring their rich archives. Heritage weaving and a distinguished colour palette are at the heart of The Anniversary Collection, with designs from the last three decades re-imagined and relaunched. Embracing the past, present and future, a brand-new design is conceived of re-interpreted elements of perennial design favourites.
Real Shetland Wool Collection
A selection of iconic Roger Oates designs are woven using natural and undyed Real Shetland wool, bringing an organic look to any interior using warm whites, soft greys and earthy browns. The finished weave is one of unparalleled richness and texture.
The ‘Tapis d’Avignon’ range is created from beautifully soft heavily felted Mouflon wool. Each bespoke rug is skilfully made from a combination of smaller, individual pieces joined and edged with a decorative blanket stitch. Choose from a palette of colours to build endless combinations in geometric designs. The size, colour and layout of these luxurious rugs can be customised to suit your own personal scheme.
