Runners are a great way to add a splash of color and/or design to a narrow space, corridor or gallery.
Typically knotted or woven by one weaver due to narrow width, a runner can be on loom for months depending on the ordered length since a weaver can knot about one linear foot (30 cm) per week for finer 100+ knot qualities.
The same weaver stays with the runner until completion to ensure that the same knotting technique and tension are consistent throughout the piece.
Many designs can be interpreted in long and narrow runner size by either extracting elements from a full carpet design or by repeating elements along the length of the piece.
In addition to providing noise absorption and cozy feeling underfoot, a runner is an opportunity to add design and/or color to a transitional space and stimulate the senses while on the path.
We have produced runners close to 50 feet long in a single piece.
