Custom rugs are an outstanding choice for your home, and binding is an integral part of the process. But it can also count as a custom feature.

If you've never had a rug bound before, this is a great time to learn more about it. Here are some facts about carpet binding and what it can mean for your rug experience.

What is carpet binding?


The binding process uses tape, fabric, or yarn to close off the edges of an area rug. It works to keep the rug from raveling and prevents damage.

But a carpet binding also matches your decor and the rug itself. So, you'll have plenty of options to create the look you want, no matter your interior design.

What kinds of binding are there?


The most common and basic binding is the fabric or tape binding. It covers the edges to prevent raveling in your choice of colors.

The next type of binding is serging, which uses a thread or yard to close the edges. This looks much like hand stitching, offers a variety of colors, and gives you custom rugs with a more refined visual.

Finally, you'll see fringing, which is more decorative and visually appealing. They are knotted and left hanging, with several options to choose from.
