Carpet Binding and Serging

What is Rug Serging and Binding? Professional Rug Binding is a very unique craft that takes patience and skill. It calls for continuously wrapping the edge of the rug with material such as yarn, which will provide your rug with a finely finished appearance. You will need the assistance of well-trained and licensed experts to have this service done effectively.

If you have ever gone to a major carpet warehouse, you may have noticed that some most carpet is sold by the yard. The reason is because they are typically used in wall-to-wall carpeting. The problem with that is sometimes you don’t want to have wall-to-wall carpeting. Sometimes, you want to get a rug cut and bound so you can have it as an accent to your flooring. It can be done!

Acquiring a rug that is made to order can be rough, especially if you are looking for carpet remnants. If you want to get that custom rug that is perfectly paired for your home, no need to worry, that is what we are here for.

Is it Possible for all Rugs to get Cut and Bound?

In theory, yes, in practice, it can depend on the type of rug that you choose. Some rugs are preferable for binding than others. For example, you probably will not be able to properly bind a rug that is made out of jute. Binding rugs that have a print on them might not be that great since the print can be cut off unevenly.
