There are several ways to accomplish your local area rug binding. There are few differences between them other than the appearance and the way the binding will serve you, but you’ll still want to make sure you make your choice after hearing about all of them.
A standard binding is functional, durable, and the most affordable of the binding options. It utilizes binding tape that matches your area rug to create a gorgeous look of continuity. Serging is a binding technique that uses yarn that is whipstitched to create a more finished look. A great variety of color is available in this option.
Fringe, which is most often used in oriental rug binding, comes in your choice of wool, cotton, or synthetic fibers and can be knotted or unknotted, to create a wonderful, decorative look. Finally, you have hand binding and hand serging, both of which are virtually invisible, extremely labor-intensive, and creates a very protected edge for your area rugs.
