Southwest Table Runners
Southwest table runners, hand woven, are an excellent way to bring out that one-of-a-kind western, rustic or Native American feel in your home decor. Used as western accents and also southwestern accessories, in different rooms or when decorating a cabin or log home with a rustic or western theme, southwestern table runners give your home character and a true authentic Native American style. The most popular southwestern western table runners, in Navajo designs, each combine beautiful colors and patterns. Not only is a southwest table runner enjoyed for its great beauty, but also the skill involved in hand weaving.
The makers of hand woven table runners are highly skilled and start the runner by kneeling in front of a vertical wooden-framed loom. The designs are then put into place by using a shuttle to weave different colored yarn together. At one time, Navajo rugs as well as those of some other Southwest Indian tribes were made of hand spun cotton thread. After domestic sheep were introduced to the area by the Spanish settlers, the people began using durable wool for their traditional weaving, then colorful placemats and table runners. Today, many of the modern southwest table runners take the place of table clothes in areas where Spanish and Native American histories come together to create one-of-a-kind designs. Southwestern table runners, with their warm earth tone colors and traditional southwestern designs make them perfect for rustic home decorating.
If you are searching for great southwestern decor, you will love table runners with patterns from Zapotec, Navajo, Pueblo or other American Indian tribes. Whatever your decorating style and whatever your home decor needs, you will enjoy the richness of color and warmth brought to life in your home by a woven southwest table runner. Weather southwestern table runners or western runner rugs is your preference, the best color and style is waiting for you on the weaver’s loom. Find a southwest table runner for your country ranch cabin, lodge, log home or for that special rustic cowboy, Indian or bunkhouse look.
