Plain colour Jute, Cotton or Linen bindings

We have a large range of plain coloured bindings to choose from, these bindings can be applied in two methods 

Standard Binding Method:

Showing a 50mm wide binding, top stitched with folded mitred corners. (as shown) 

Deluxe Binding Method:

Showing a 70mm wide binding, blind stitched (a technique used to conceal the stitching) with padding and tailored mitreed corners. (as shown) 
You can also choose from narrow or wider finish binding widths, twin or triple coloured edgings. 

Tapestry and Fabric binding

We have a range of European tapestry and fabric bindings to choose from, however we can also apply your own fabrics to our carpets. All tapestry and fabric bindings are applied using our Deluxe binding method only, normally showing around a 120mm wide binding, however this may vary due to the style of the particular fabric required. (as shown) 

Leather binding

We have a range of leather bindings to choose from. Again all leather bindings are applied using our Deluxe binding method only. Showing a 70mm wide binding but you can choose the width of the binding, anywhere between 30mm up to 120mm wide finish. (as shown) 

Turned Edges with Underlay

This is our most simple way of making a rug without an edging, where we turn and glue back the edges, like a hem and then we adhere an underlay to the underside of the rug. This gives a flat finish and a softer feel under foot. This method of binding does result in the rug having slightly rounded corners. (as shown) 

Self Edging

This is our premium style of binding, where we use the same product as the floor rug for the border, normally showing an 120mm wide finish, but again you can choose the width of binding from 70mm upwards. Self edging is an under stated, very elegant and timeless finish. (as shown)  
We can also apply self-edging to the top and bottom ends only to show a different look shown below.

Flat Strapping

Flat strapping is a stylish method of binding only available on the Villa Natralis range of 100% Un Dyed Woven Wools where the sides are bound with no visible binding on the surface of the rug

Standard application of overlocking with a cotton thread matched closely to the product.

Our underlay can be added to all of our floor rugs, thus giving better sound absorption and a softer feel under foot.
