What are Jute Runners?

Jute runners are a practical addition to your home and also are a stylish statement that embodies natural beauty and sustainable living. Jute runners, crafted from eco-friendly jute fibres, bring a rustic charm and timeless appeal to any space. Their earthy tones and organic textures seamlessly integrate into various interior designs, making them a versatile choice for contemporary and traditional homes alike.

Material and Manufacturing

Jute is a natural material derived from the fibres of the jute plant, known for its sustainability and eco-friendly properties. This makes jute an excellent choice for those looking to reduce their environmental footprint while enhancing their home’s aesthetic. 

Our jute runners are compatible with underfloor heating, making them an excellent choice for modern homes looking to combine style with practicality.

The Benefits of Jute Runners

Jute runners offer numerous advantages, making them a popular choice for homeowners seeking both style and practicality. Here are some key benefits of incorporating jute runners into your home décor:

  • Versatility: jute runners boast a classic look that can effortlessly complement various interior styles. As trends evolve, these timeless rugs will continue to enhance your space, making them a smart, long-term investment.
  • Rustic charm: the natural, earthy fibres of jute bring a rustic touch to any room, creating a warm and inviting atmosphere. This organic aesthetic can enhance both modern and traditional interiors.
  • Warmth and texture: jute runner rugs add a layer of warmth and texture to your floors, making them feel more cosy and comfortable. This tactile quality is particularly appealing in high-traffic areas like hallways and kitchens.
  • Timeless appeal: with their neutral tones and understated elegance, jute runners are a timeless addition to any home. They blend seamlessly with a wide range of colour palettes and décor styles, from minimalist to bohemian.
  • Natural aesthetic: the natural fibres and organic texture of jute create a serene and calming environment. This aesthetic is perfect for those looking to bring a bit of nature indoors and create a relaxing, harmonious space.

In addition to these benefits, a jute runner rug is also durable and practical, making it suitable for high-traffic areas in your home. Its hard-wearing nature ensures it can withstand daily use while maintaining its beauty and charm.

Our Bestselling Jute Runners

Our collection of jute runners includes several standout pieces that have become customer favourites. Each runner brings its unique design and charm, catering to various aesthetic preferences and functional needs. Here are some of our bestselling jute runners:

Oak Runner Range

The Oak Runner range, particularly the Oak & Storm option, is a top seller. This jute runner features a striking blue border that contrasts beautifully with the natural jute fibres, adding a sophisticated touch to its rustic appeal.

  • This runner pairs wonderfully with greenery and foliage, enhancing the natural aesthetic of your space. Its warm texture provides a pleasing contrast to concrete floors and darker kitchen cabinets.
  • The Oak Runners are available in several colour options, including ivory, blues and slate, and comes in three different lengths: 70x200cm, 70x250cm and 70x300cm. This variety ensures you can find the perfect fit for your space.

Birch & Ivory Runner

Another favourite is the Birch & Ivory Runner, which combines the durability of jute with the softness of wool. This blend results in a striped runner that feels softer underfoot compared to pure jute.

  • The Birch & Ivory Runner is perfect for creating a Hamptons or seaside aesthetic, adding a gentle contrast to darker kitchen cabinets and flooring.
  • Available in ivory and a range of blue tones, this runner comes in multiple lengths, making it versatile enough to fit various spaces and design schemes.

Ideal Placement for Jute Runners

Jute runners are a versatile and stylish addition to many areas of the home, but some locations particularly benefit from their natural charm and durability. Here are the best places to use jute runner rugs:

  1. Hallways: hallways are high-traffic areas where jute runners can add warmth and texture. Their durability makes them ideal for these spaces, providing a welcoming path through your home.
  2. Kitchens: jute runners can enhance the look of your kitchen, especially in low-traffic areas where spills are less likely. They add a natural, rustic touch that pairs well with a variety of kitchen styles. However, it’s important to note that jute can become watermarked and is difficult to clean if stained, so placement should be carefully considered to avoid high-spill zones.
  3. Entryways: the entryway is another excellent location for a jute runner. It sets a natural, inviting tone as guests enter your home, and its hard-wearing nature ensures it can handle the traffic and dirt that typically accompany this area.
  4. Living rooms and bedrooms: in living rooms and bedrooms, jute runners can be used to define spaces, such as placing them beside the bed or along the length of a sofa. Their natural fibres and neutral tones blend seamlessly with various décor styles, adding a touch of organic elegance.

For all placements, we recommend using a rug underlay to prevent the rug from moving over time. 

The Perfect Jute Runner for Your Home

Selecting the perfect jute runner involves considering the space where it will be placed and the overall aesthetic you wish to achieve. Here are some tips to help you choose the ideal jute runner for your home:

  1. Assess the space: measure the area where you plan to place the runner to ensure it fits perfectly. Consider the traffic level and exposure to potential spills, especially in kitchens and entryways.
  2. Match your décor: jute runners come in various colours and patterns, from natural hues to those with contrasting borders or stripes. Choose a design that complements your existing décor. For example, the Oak & Storm Runner, with its blue border suits coastal or Hamptons-inspired spaces.
  3. Consider texture and comfort: if you prefer a softer feel underfoot, consider a jute runner that incorporates other materials, such as wool. The Birch & Ivory Runner, which blends jute with wool, offers a softer texture compared to pure jute runners.
  4. Practicality: jute runners are durable and suitable for high-traffic areas, but they are not stain-resistant. Place them in areas where they are less likely to encounter spills and stains. 
  5. Visualisation tools: utilise tools like our Room Visualiser to see how different jute runners will look in your space. This innovative feature allows you to compare two rugs side by side virtually, helping you make a more informed decision about which runner best suits your home.
