Try A Southwest Table Runner For Native Style Home Decor

Mar 12, 2008
A Southwest table runner is an excellent way to enhance that one-of-a-kind western, rustic or Native American style in your home decorating. Because of their growing popularity, many designers are choosing to buy their southwest table runner online. Used as western accents and also southwestern accessories, in kitchens or when decorating a cabin or log home with a rustic or western theme, southwestern table runners give your home character and a definite authentic Native American look.

When buying American Indian style table runners, you will find a large selection making it easy to buy a western table runner and you will definitely want to add a few of the most popular and sought-after runners or table rugs in your home decor. These table runners have a long history that has grown over time and can truly be considered as pieces of art.

Among the most popular southwestern and western table runners, in Indian patterns, each different runner uses a combination of beautiful colors and characters, symbolizing spiritual or historic events and a variation of colors and designs.

Not only is a southwest table runner known for its great beauty, but the skill and hard work needed in making Native table runners is also greatly appreciated. The makers of hand woven table runners are highly skilled and start the runner making process by kneeling in front of a vertical wooden-framed loom. The designs are then placed by using a shuttle to weave a variety of colored yarn together, making geometric characters and designs.

In the beginning, Navajo rugs as well as those of some other Southwest Indian tribes were weaved of hand spun cotton thread. However, after the wool of domestic sheep was introduced to the area by the Spanish settlers, the people mainly used wool to weave their colorful rugs, table runners and other traditional weaving.

Today, many of the modern southwest table runners are made in areas where Spanish and Native American histories have melded together to create unique designs. Southwestern table runners, with their warm earth tone colors and unique southwestern designs make them a great choice for rustic home decorating.

If you are searching for great southwestern decor, you will most likely purchase from American companies or directly from Native American weavers. Purchasing western table runners from Navajo or other American Indian tribes not only allows you the satisfaction of owning a southwest table runner that is woven by Native Americans but also helps to support the Native American heritage of rug weaving, and the people who themselves sell their rugs, runners, and Native American art.

The table runner you choose will greatly depend on what your tastes are and what kind of decorating you decide on. You will find that a southwest table runner is the perfect southwestern accent when combined with rustic or western home decor. Whether you are changing your home decor or decorating an entire house using a southwestern theme, you will find many designs and colors available to choose from. Among these options you will be able to choose from Zapotec runners with no two alike, to southwest table runners with southwestern style.

Designers love hand woven wool table runners because of the rich colors and textures. Whatever your decorating style and whatever your decorating needs, you will no doubt enjoy the richness of color and warmth brought to life in your home by decorating with a southwest table runner.
