Serging & Over-round

Surging a RugWhat is serging?

This term refers to the way the carpet or rug is bound. Machine made rugs usually have a binding tape sewn to finish its edges, as this is a faster and cheaper way to finish rug's edges. In hand made rugs, serging is done with a single thread in a looping pattern, also known as an over-round stitch. 

In this video, an over-round stitch is being applied to finish the edges of this hand made rug.

The edges of my rug are fraying! What can I do?

Frayed edges are one of the most common rug repairs, as edges receive a lot of abuse from foot traffic. When you see edges beginning to fray, it's best to call a reputable rug care company to have it repaired before further damage occurs. Repairing your rug as soon as you notice a problem will keep the repair costs to a minimum and ensure that you get to keep your beautiful Oriental area rug for many years.

Can a carpet rug be reduced in size?

Serging or Binding allows you to take a rug that is too large for the area and have it cut down to size and finished - providing you with the perfect area rug. When shopping for a new area rug, you can look at most carpet selections and have it custom made into a rug size of your choice by having all edges serged or bound.
