What is Carpet Binding?

Carpet binding is a system that uses carpet remnants to create beautiful area rugs, runners, and more. It is the process of stitching the ends of these remnants to prevent the edges from unraveling. There are a number of different ways that this could be done.

  • Binding Tape: A durable polyester or cotton tape is sewn to the edges of the carpet remnant. This is the most common method of carpet binding. This is a good option for customers looking for a cost-effective solution.

  • Serging: Some customers may choose serging to finish the edges of their carpet remnants. The finished look is more luxurious and is most often used on high quality materials like oriental carpeting. The edges are finished with a wraparound yarn instead of tape and is often more expensive.

  • Wide cotton tape: This type of binding comes in 2 width 3” and 5” although after it has been sewn on the rug you will only see 1 ½” or 2 ½”. Typically this type of binding goes on sisal rugs but customers love it’s bold look on all types of carpeting. This type of binding will cost you a bit more.

Additionally, fringing can be added for an oriental-inspired look on any carpet remnant.

Ways to Use Your New Rug

Once your carpet or rug have been bound, you can place it anywhere in the home. Some of the benefits of these rugs include:

  • Keep the floors clean. Catch dirt and grime without damaging your wood floors. By choosing a custom runner which works well in doorways, hallways, and mudrooms. Rugs also create  a welcoming environment. These rugs can be replaced easily without breaking the bank in the event they are ruined. 

  • Add to the decor. Being able to choose any carpet or rug style rather than selecting a pre-made area rug gives you complete control over the design. Choose the shape, size, color, and pattern that fit your interior decor best. There are hundreds of stock items to choose from, or you can bring your own. The possibilities are endless.
