Carpet Binding

Make your own rug with carpet binding tape

Typically, a stair runner or rug will be cut from a wider or remnant piece of broadloom carpet, sometimes as wide as 4m or 5m. This will mean it has raw edges, which will easily fray and require carpet binding tape. Traditionally, this would he been done with an overlocking stitch (like a basic blanket stitch) or having a rug binding tape, such as leather or cotton, sewn to the edges. However, both these options involve sending your carpet away to a specialist manufacturer and are consequently costly and long-winded. In contrast, you can edge your rug or runner with Easybind at home: it’s simple and fast and looks smart.

What is Easybind carpet edge binding?

This mixed fibre, rope-style carpet edging is self-adhesive and comes already attached to the backing tape; this backing tape attaches to the reverse of the carpet, leaving only the rope edging visible. When sealed with a narrow bead of glue, it neatly locks in the loose fibres of the raw edges and creates an attractive, narrow edging strip to a stair runner and rug.

Choose your carpet edging from 38 colours

Whilst the names may be deceiving, the colours of this range of carpet binding provide an excellent selection to complement or contrast most styles of plain or patterned carpet. You can choose from either the standard colours, some of which are two-tone, or the Deluxe colour range – the latter have an attractive, additional sheen to the fibres.

Make your own rug any size or shape

The versatility of Easybind means that any design and width of carpet can be transformed into a smart stair runner or rug. Circles, squares, oblongs and unusual angles are all possible.

Likewise, the fixing method is discrete and durable and is suitable for both residential and commercial installations. The choice of 38 colours provides a popular selection of plain hues and stripes to contrast or coordinate with your main body carpet. Made from strong synthetic yarn, Easybind carpet binding has a subtle silk finish, which complements most yarns and natural flooring.
