Polyester carpet binding is the standard application for the majority of area rugs. DWP Carpet Binding uses one-and-a-quarter inch polyester binding as our standard size for area rugs. Most other places use a seven-eighths inch material. The main reason we choose the 1.25 inch is because it gives the application a criper, cleaner look. This material also gets a better grab when stitched onto the carpet edges, which offers longevity.
*Cotton binding is a product typically used on high-end area rugs, or wool carpets (although, you can choose cotton binding for any carpet). DWP Carpet Binding uses 1.25" cotton binding when applying this material. The material is 100% cotton with a variety of 120 colors to choose from.*
*Serging is a yarn that will be sewn on simultaneously with a seven-eighths inch polyester binding underneath it. Serging makes a loop around the edge of the carpet then stitched into place. DWP Carpet Binding has both cotton serging yarn and polyester serging yarn to choose from. *
Fringe is a product DWP Carpet Binding offers along with our other carpet binding services. The fringe we can sew onto your carpet is known as "synthetic fringe"; this is because it was not a part of the carpet weaving process. Authentic/real fringe is actually woven into the carpet. DWP Carpet Binding offers 100% cotton fringe of various colors, lengths and styles.
Sisal binding / wide-border binding is a high-end application for carpet binding. DWP Carpet Binding only offers a blind-stitch application with this product. Our material is 100% cotton. The cotton binding is available in 3 inch or 5 inch rolls, therefore DWP Carpet Binding can get various front-face exposures.
Seaming carpets can be done for a couple of reasons:
Custom carpets are area rugs that get designed and created as long as there is imagination at hand. Any design can be done, whether it is a logo, monograms, creative images, etc. When creating custom carpets, there is a lot of time and labor that is needed to finish the process, however you end up with a one-of-a-kind carpet that you won't find in stores! The images shown are custom pieces that have been designed and created here in house at DWP Carpet Binding.
For unusual, custom shaped pieces DWP Carpet Binding offers hand-binding and hand-serging for the complex areas. Most often times one of these two services will be used on custom shaped pieces for boats, airplanes or pieces with interior radii or special cut-outs.
Carpet base / cove base is an application where strips of carpet ranging from 4 inch - 6 inch (on average) height is glued to the wall, where the wall and floor meet. It is generally something you'll see in a hospital, school, hotel, mall or bank. Carpet base is typically a commercial application. DWP Carpet Binding offers services for both cutting and binding carpet base. Our standard application is the seven-eighths polyester binding.
