See our Glued & Turned, JUTE, COTTON Edgings.

We have a large range of plain coloured bindings to choose from, additional bindings methods are shown below.

($8 per edging mt) Sealed & Glued with PVA Glue:

This simple DIY method can easily be done by the customer, all that is needed is PVA glue & an old toothbrush to massage the glue into the sisal or seagrass as it Dry's, this will reduce/stop Fraying.

It is advised to initially apply a 3~5mm bead of glue to the top outer edges & gently rubbing the glue into the fibres as it dry's, once dry it is a lot safer to cut & shape to any desired shape, if you have PVA the shape/edge.

NB: As it is drying try not to leave mini pools of white PVA glue, as these will dry with a shiny hues, this is the simplest method to stop the edges fraying.

($16 per edging mt) Standard Sewn Binding Method:

20mm wide Natural Jute binding, with stitched with folded mitred corners.

With this method, we first double seal the cut edges with PVA glue to reduce the likely hood of fraying, before the webbing is Sewn-on.

TURNED & GLUED UNDER EDGES: ($22 per edging mt)

This is our most simple way of making a rug without an edging, where we turn and glue back the edges like a hem, using a special heat proof adhesive, we then glue (recommended) or customer can simply loose-lay an underlay to the underside of the rug, using an underlay gives a flat finish and a softer feel under foot feel.

Depending on the product this method of edging can result in the rug having slightly rounded corners or we can make them rounder if required.

($75 per edging mt) SELF SEWN EDGING:

This is one of our premium style of binding, where we use the same product as the floor rug for the border, normally showing a 120mm wide finish, but again you can choose the width of binding from 70mm upwards.

Self edging is very elegant and timeless finish, you do not need to use an Underlay if you like or don't mind the outer raised border, inlaying underlay 2cm back from the inner edge will create a uniform thickness.

UNDERLAY can be Glued or Supplied with all of our floor rugs, thus giving better sound absorption and a softer feel under foot, either adhered to the backing of the rug or simply loose laid beneath the rug.
