About Us

Sophie Cooney Runners is the original creator of contemporary, Kilim-inspired flatweaves for stairs - bringing together unique designs and outstanding craftsmanship to create the finest handwoven runners. Employing a growing team of highly skilled artisans in Turkey and India, it produces collections instantly recognisable by their quality weave, bold colour combinations and striking designs. Sophie Cooney Runners have been transforming hallways worldwide since 2014.

The collection includes two distinct ranges: The Wool Range, handwoven in Turkey, are bespoke pieces that create lasting impressions, whilst also being incredibly hard-wearing to endure a lifetime. 

The Raw Cotton Range, from India,  offers excellent value with vibrant colours and a ‘lived-in’ look due to a slight fade over time, much like a pair of well-worn, well-loved denim jeans. 

Sophie Cooney Runners is dedicated to running a sustainable business and committed to preserving the cultural heritage and highly skilled craftsmanship of Kilim weaving. Support is also given to local charities with a focus on education. 

How would you describe your style?

"A contemporary take of the kilim style flat weave with hints of tribal and ethnic inspiration. Sophie's designs balance colour and pattern to create unique and striking impressions."
