If you’re looking for ways to make your country or rustic styled room feel comfortable and welcoming, a braided runner rug is a perfect choice. Braided rug runners are long narrow rugs that are constructed using a braiding or plaiting technique. They give a space a rustic, warm, country feel, with a nod to nostalgia.
Braided rugs started showing up in American colonies in the late 1500s to early 1600s. Settlers learned braiding rug techniques from Native Americans and used those techniques to make braided rugs out of scraps of cotton, wool or burlap. The braided rug technique has been passed down for generations. Today, braided rugs are most commonly machine made but they’re still as durable and attractive as handmade braided rugs.
Braided rug runners can be made out of a variety of materials. The most common are braided wool runners and braided jute runners. Braided cotton runners are also popular. These are extra durable rug materials so they can be used in many different spaces and are easy to see why they’re a designer favorite. These natural fibers are also easy to clean, naturally repel dirt and are stain-resistant.
A braided runner rug works great in long narrow spaces where you want to add softness, dimension, and texture. Here are just a few places in the home that are elevated with a braided rug runner:
Braided runner rugs are available in a variety of colors and materials. If you’re looking to give your country or rustic styled room that extra something, consider a braided runner rug!
