Looking for a Roger Oates stair runner or rug at a greatly reduced price? The Roger Oates Summer Sale starts on Wednesday 10th June. It’s full of discounted clearance runners, ready-made wool rugs and fabrics.
Why do items go into the Roger Oates Clearance Sale? Below, we have de-mystified the meaning of slight seconds, over-runs, trial pieces and archived product.
Our flatweave runners are woven on traditional looms and, due to the nature of the weaving process, faults can occur. Every roll we produce goes through quality control to an extremely high standard- any runner that does not fully comply is put to one side for clearance. Nonetheless, some of these imperfections are very slight, some even un-noticeable to the untrained eye; so even though we can see them, you might not!
Top Tip Make sure you are prepared with your measurements, to ensure that you order the correct quantity for your staircase – read our How To Measure guide.
All of our designs can be woven in one-off colours and in wider or narrower widths. We always weave more than we need at the time to ensure that there are no faults. These over-runs are eventually put into the sale.
All of our runner designs are trialled prior to going into production, with small adjustments made to colour and design before they are selected for a collection launch. The weave quality will be first rate, but it has been classified as clearance as it didn’t make the final edit. Trial pieces often represent the very best of bargains!
Roger Oates continually launches new collections of runners, so periodically some of the older designs are moved to ‘archive’ status. Any remaining lengths that are left over will then become available to purchase through clearance.
Finished rugs and runners
The sale will also include ready-made runners made from roll ends and are perfect for hallways. We also have a selection of ready-made area rugs ideal for all rooms. Don’t forget to buy your underlay too!
Discontinued fabric lines. Linens, cotton and silks in stripes and plains from £10/mt
