In premium burlap with sweet pleating, it's the perfect runner to punctuate any tablescape, special occasion or everyday table regardless of the name you give it.
Made of my premium jute fabric; think burlap woven of grade A natural jute fibers in a slightly tighter weave for a bit more refinement and durability. Side edges are serged and turned under with a generous 1-inch hem. 3-inch contrasting band is finished with a complementary touch of gently pleated petersham ribbon. You choose at checkout whether you want your runner to have the chestnut (darker) burlap with cream (lighter) burlap ends OR the cream burlap with chestnut ends.
Yes, I really do change the thread color as I finish the side hems. I warned you I’m persnickety about construction!
Overall measurement is 9 1/2 by 60 inches, inclusive of bands and pleating. Long enough to march down the length of a harvest table, or gracefully dangle across the width or over the edge of a dropleaf. When your table setting calls for a smaller platform for your centerpiece, just take some tucks in the center and you have custom length and extra texture and dimension.
Custom lengths? No problem, again just send me a convo and I will post you a custom listing.
To keep shipping expense to a minimum, your runner will be tenderly folded and shipped to you in a padded envelope. Just take a hot iron to it and all will be happy. However, if you would prefer, I can ship to you rolled in a tube, for an upcharge of $4. Just send me a convo and I am happy to post a custom listing for you.
Care: Jute/Burlap is not machine washable. I recommend spot cleaning and if necessary, gently hand-washing, and air dry flat or hanging from a skirt hanger.
Please note: there’s a reason I refer to jute/burlap as the teenager of textiles. You just have to love it’s raw texture and personality. Yet, like most teenagers it definitely has a mind of its own. Just as teenagers are not fond of taking instructions well, jute is a natural fiber that does not like to take dye well. Burlap is not colorfast. This means it will fade in bright sunlight over time. It also means that if it gets wet and is allowed to sit, the dye could bleed onto porous surfaces it has extended contact with, which is the reason I only make my table runners out of the light and dark natural jute.
