Part of our premium New Zealand Wool collection of True Bullnose ® padded carpet stair treads! An elegant but affordable alternative to a complete professional runner installation. We sell treads individually (per step) so you can order the correct number of treads to match the number of steps you have in your staircase.
We make the treads in our standard sizes of 24"wide, or 27" wide, 31" wide and 35" wide and they fit the standard 10" deep stair with a 1" thick tread. But if you need a custom size, just let us know, we can do that, too!
The style is made by J Mish with 100% New Zealand Wool. J Mish puts it best: "With a nubby wool texture, reminiscent of a fisherman’s sweater, Blackjack alternates rows of thick loop stripe with textured vertical ribs in a two-color check. Blackjack is part of the Black Tie Collection, four classic yet bold styles based on a variegated stripe theme, each with a unique texture and rhythm."
This style comes in the following colors:
R0013 Black Jack (Shown on steps)
R0012 Wall Street
Here is how we do it:
We start with this awesome 100% Wool carpet, cut it down to the correct tread size, seam the boarders, permanently attach our True Bullnose ® rigid edge, and then add a soft, non-scratchy padding to the back. (Padding is now recommended by every carpet manufacturer. It improves the comfort, performance and life of the carpet. We use a 100% post-consumer padding and the best part is we include it at no additional cost!)

The standard size is made for a 10″ deep tread 27″ wide, but you can be upgraded to 31″ wide or 35″ wide — or we can make any custom size you may need! As shown in our Shop, the True Bullnose ® stair tread is permanently attached to a rigid bullnose piece so that when installed it will stay nicely wrapped around your stair tread. Other manufacturers use combinations of tape or glue, and hope that your tread will stay wrapped around the end of your stair tread. Not these. True Bullnose ® treads have a pressure sensitive material that keeps the tread in place and a strong, rigid bullnose edge that keeps the wrap-around in place.
Why Wool? This is answered by the Grower-Owned Wools of New Zealand:
Asthma Safe - Wool has some amazing features built in by nature. Wool textiles act as a natural air filter, trapping allergens such as dust and pollen and keeping them out of the breathing zone
Fire Safe - Wool does not burn until its gets to 700 degrees celsius, even then it self extinguishes once the source of the fire is removed.
Breathe Safe - Wool purifies the air - Wool absorbs indoor contaminants and purifies the air you breathe of harmful gases, locking them away for up to 30 years.
Quiet Spaces - Wool absorbs unwanted noise - Wool textiles absorb noise and create warmth making your home or office the perfect place for relaxation, concentration and play.
Wools of New Zealand is owned by the people who grow our wool, farming families who are committed to sustainable farming practices and caring for the land so that it may be passed to future generations
Every farm is audited by AsureQuality, a New Zealand government owned Conformity Assessment Body, for:
Land Management, Animal Welfare, Social Responsibility and Transparency.
We connect consumers with the people who grow superior wool, doing so ensuring excellence in all aspects of sustainability.
Wools of New Zealand works to understand the needs of our customers so that our growers can prepare the ideal wool fit for the intended value chain and deliver the optimum performance throughout it’s life. Through our supply database we are able to identify which of our growers can best deliver wool to meet the requirements of individual products. By connecting our growers with supply partners we are able to communicate future market requirements to ensure our growers adapt on-farm methods to deliver the ultimate wool.
In addition to our return and exchange policy, there is a 30% restocking fee for any returns. While we wish this was not necessary, our shop’s made to order nature makes it so. We purchase the carpet and create each order once it is placed. Thank you for your understanding and patience!

This is so nice! Very thick and good quality. I’m bummed because it turns out my stairs are all a bit wonky so I couldn’t keep it, but the company was really good about communication with me before sending it and even when I had to send it back.

Absolutely gorgeous stair treads (even better when seen in person than online)! I'm lucky to have found RiverDriveDesigns. I looked ALL over, and RiverDriveDesigns has the most beautiful and elegant-looking stair treads anywhere. I wanted wool and ended up choosing 100% New Zealand Wool in the Black Jack pattern. Diane was extremely helpful in working with me to figure out the best size to get, both in terms of width (I ended up with 31" wide treads for 42" wide stairs) and depth. Diane and her team got the depth of the treads spot-on. The fit is perfect. It was so easy to put these treads on the stairs (took me 5-10 minutes total -- I was being picky about making sure I lined them up exactly the same on each stair). I love love love my new stair treads. Thank you, Diane and the rest of RiverDriveDesigns team!
