Typically, a stair runner or rug will be cut from a wider piece of carpet i.e. 4m or 5m wide. This will mean it has raw edges, which will easily fray and require carpet binding. There are various options to make your own rug, including over-locking stitch (like a basic blanket stitch) and adding a rug binding e.g. tapestry or sisal. However, both these methods are not particularly attractive and add significantly to the cost of the runner.
The Easybind carpet edging can be used to convert any width, style and most qualities of carpet into a made-to-measure stair runner or rug. It can also be used with many types of natural flooring, including sisal. The rope-styled Easybind is applied to the reverse of the carpet, neatly locking in the loose fibres of the raw edges and adding an attractive, narrow edging strip to the stair runner or rug.
Whilst the names may be deceiving, the colours of this range of carpet binding provide an excellent selection to complement or contrast any style of plain or patterned carpet. Choose from either the standard colours in the rope edging or the Deluxe colour range in the rope edging – the latter have an attractive, additional sheen to the fibres.
The versatility of Easybind means that any design and width of carpet can be transformed into a smart stair runner without detracting from the carpet design with unsightly over-locking yarn or wide, decorative borders.
The fixing method is discrete and durable and is suitable for both residential and commercial installations. The choice of over 30 colours provides a popular selection of plain hues and stripes, which can provide a contrasting or coordinating feature with the body carpet. Made from strong synthetic yarn, Easybind carpet binding has a subtle silk finish, which complements most yarns and natural flooring.
