Roger and Fay 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.

The online store is a new departure for Roger Oates that brings you a collection of classic Roger Oates designs - a range of home accessories that include perfectly simple stools, stripy throws and woven carpet bags as well as practical, good-looking rugs and mats.
