Five FAQs about carpet binding

Carpet binding is necessary for all area rugs for a variety of reasons. First, it helps keep the fibers from unraveling, creating an outstanding visual.

We know you have questions about this process, and we have the answers you need. Here are five of our most frequently asked questions and their solutions.

Custom rugs can be bound with regular binding tape, serging, or fringing. Each option features different widths, colors, and types, so consider them all.
