No matter the size, shape, or complexity of your rug, we have the expertise to bring out its true magnificence once again.
At The Rug Guru, we offer professional rug binding and carpet edging services that provide essential structural integrity to your rugs. Our expert techniques ensure your rug remains not only beautiful but also durable over time.
Two sides of the rug are finished with binding, while the two ends are adorned with fringes. The binding plays a crucial role in the rug's structure, helping to hold it together. After the weaving process of various rug types, including oriental rugs and machine-made rugs, bindings are skillfully applied to protect the sides of the rug. This protective edge prevents knots from unraveling, ensuring the rug's longevity and appearance.
Over time, the binding can undergo wear and tear due to heavy traffic, pet chewing, vacuuming, or the placement of heavy furniture. Damaged binding can lead to an uneven appearance and structural issues for the rug. Similar to fringing, binding serves the purpose of protecting the rug's edge and ensuring it lays flat on the floor, enhancing the rug's overall aesthetic appeal.
Depending on the extent of the damage, our experts will recommend either full hand binding replacement or spot binding repairs. The method of binding used can vary based on the rug's type and originality. For instance, Persian handmade rugs often feature single, twin, or triple binding lines to ensure the rug's edge is both functional and visually appealing.
For your precious handmade rugs, we employ specialized techniques to preserve their original beauty. Our hand-sewn binding and repair services ensure your rug's edges stay intact and stunning.
Each type of binding may require different methods to repair and restore it. In the case of Persian, Turkish, Moroccan, Afghani, Kashmiri, Indian, Chinese, and Nepali rugs; some binding may be made of cotton, goat hair, or camel hair, but most rugs use sheep wool.
We are skilled and experienced in repairing all types of rugs whether they are handmade or machine-made. We can also repair rugs made from all types of fiber.
When it comes to handmade rugs, we take a meticulous approach. We use the same types of materials and finishes as the original, striving to maintain the rug's authenticity. For many Persian or other Oriental rugs, patching may be the most economically viable repair choice. We highly recommend addressing holes or damage as soon as they're discovered to prevent more extensive harm. The extent of repairs may vary based on the rug's value and the extent of damage, but rest assured, The Rug Guru can restore your damaged rug to its original condition.
We take pride in our hand-sewn binding techniques that keep the rug as close to its original condition as possible. When a rug requires repairs, our artisans conduct a thorough inspection and provide you with the best options to address the problem areas. Our ultimate goal is to return your rug to you in the best possible condition, preserving its beauty and functionality.

If the original edge cording is significantly worn, we ensure that new warping is secured, sewn, and strung under tension. This meticulous process is followed by overcasting with color-matched wool, seamlessly integrating the new binding with the rug's original structure.
