In celebration of 20 years of our iconic New Hadley, we are looking at the beautiful brights that have made the design a renowned piece of the Roger Oates collection since 2001.
A popular and recognisable staple since its introduction back in 2001, New Hadley is an evolution of our original ‘Hadley’ design – a wide repeating stripe created in 1994. After several years, the design was reinterpreted with a subtle variation in the rib and herringbone weave structure we see today – narrower, more refined proportions with a focus on bold colour.
Originally released in a number of neutral hues, New Hadley was recoloured by Roger and Fay in the mid 2000s with the bright, daring colours we celebrate today – Lime, Mandarin and Bright Rose. These zesty shades have moved away from neutral tones popular at the time, inviting us all to be bolder and introduce more colour into our homes.

This riot of acid tones has made New Hadley one of the most recognisable designs within our collection – these boldly coloured runners remain firm favourites with their undeniable Roger Oates handwriting.
