These gorgeous white table runners are perfect for adding a touch of elegance to your table. Every one of them was woven by hand by artisans in Chimaltenango, in Guatemala. The off-white color of the raw cotton has diamond patterns woven in the same color, creating the perfect background to highlight the different color combinations of the floral patterns.
There are three bands of these delicate floral diamonds, interwoven with gold-colored thread, on each of the table runners. They come in four variations, each of which was named for the flower that inspired the color combination: Hibiscus, with a dark coral and navy blue; Heliconia, with a dark forest green combined with vibrant yellow and bright threads; Hortensia, with navy blue and sky blue interwoven in the flowers; and the Torch Lily, with floral details in a combination of yellow with deep brown.
This would be the perfect table runner for a round table - or even for a dresser or a piano. Get creative! Its versatility means you could use it as a farmhouse table runner for a more relaxed meal with friends or as a fancy table runner for an elegant evening. Our placemats in this same collection, the Botanical Collection, combine perfectly with these table runners so that your meal can be set on a table runner with matching placemats. They also go beautifully with our artisanal bowls and utensils, as well, as you can see in the photo.

Care and Maintenance:
Cotton is the ideal fabric for a table runner because it is washable and soft to the touch, and this table runner is easy to care for. For its first wash, wash it by hand with cold water and a splash of vinegar. After that first wash, it should be washed by hand in cold water and using a soft detergent. It can go in the washing machine, but only using cold water and the delicate cycle. Do not iron them. Easy!
