What is Carpet Binding?

Carpet (or rug) binding is an optional service that uses carpet remnants to create area rugs, runners, and more. It is the process of stitching together the ends of these remnants with durable, intricate stitches that will prevent the edges from unraveling. There are a number of different ways that this effect can be achieved:
  • Binding Tape: A durable polyester tape is applied to the edges of the carpet remnant. Then a high powered sewing machine is run over the taped edges to secure them. This is the most common method of carpet binding. A handheld rolling sewing machine can be used. We also have a large, industrial strength sewing machine at our shop. This is a good option for customers looking for a cost-effective solution.
  • Traditional Surging: Some customers may opt to choose surging 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 tightly wound thread instead of tape. This method may take weeks to complete, and is often more expensive. Consider this option for luxury items.
  • Surging Tape: This carpet binding method combines the above to for a more affordable option and a more luxurious look. Surging tape looks very similar to traditional surging and is durable. The look is completed using the same methods used for polyester binding tape.

Additionally, fringing can be added using a strong adhesive for an oriental-inspired look on any carpet remnant. It can be a great personal touch to your new floor covering.
