Easybind carpet edge
This carpet edging is ideal for creating rugs of any shape and edging runners for staircases and hallways. It works particularly well with standard thickness carpet but can also be used on sisal, although the open weave makes the process a little more tricky.
There are 38 colour options in the Easybind range in a choice of plain and multi-tone. The rope edging is a twisted, chunky design which has a striking quality appearance. You simply purchase the linear meters you require which reflects the outer dimension of the rug you wish to make.
So, dig out that remnant carpet which you have kept in the loft for a rainy day and get cracking!
