      Woollen Fringing and Tassel Finish

      Carpet Binders can add a gorgeous woollen fringe or tassel edge to any rug. This adds another dimension to the finishing touches when entering a room.

      We also are often called upon to given new life to a much-loved rug that has had a fringe that has seen better days.  In the rug recovery process we often rebind the edges at the same time. Therefore the patterned rug can continue to bring pleasure to its owners for another decade or two.

      With our woollen fringing service, the choice of the colour of the tassels is endless.

        Coir Area Mats

        Coir Area Rugs that need to be edged.

        Lately, coir area mats are being widely introduced and subsequently used in many homes.  This is due to their hard wearing and eco-friendly properties. However, often the edges are not finished or just sealed with glue.  This leaves an unsightly look of just a piece of coir on the floor as opposed to a finished rug.  This could be on what is often a beautiful hard floor surface.

        At Carpet Binders we can overlock these pieces of coir matting and have a dedicated machine for this sole purpose as the timing set and needles used in the finishing of the coarse fibre with its uneven density require a different set up from our standard carpet overlocking option.

        Call us today to discuss your needs regarding your coir mats and there edging options.

          Most companies don’t offer opinions, recommendations, or advice on finishing edges.  It could be that they want to finish the rug the easiest way possible or just make the sale and will tell the client anything.

          At Carpet Binders we take the time to inform and discuss with our customers on the best option for their rug. We understand the purpose and need for the rug so the rug is fit for purpose.  Our team pride ourselves on our professional service offering.
