Made to Order Rug Edging Choices

corners

Our showroom offers a variety of products as “made to order”.  We don’t use the word “custom” since that word makes things sound expensive.  The image above shares some industry terms that are used to describe materials and treatments used to create “made to order” rugs.  On the far left is an economical way to have a “wide” border.  The material is run through a folder and the stitching shows.  Corners are overlapped since it cost less to do that versus hand sew mitred corners.  The second from the left is “blindstitch” with an overlapped corner.  One edge of the fabric is sewn onto the field of the rug.  It is wrapped and glued onto the back.   The middle example is blindstitch with a hand sewn mitred corner.  This is the most labor intensive process for applying an edge finish.  The narrow machine binding is the simplest and most cost effective way to finish a “made to order” area rug.  “Serging” on the far right is just a bit more expensive than narrow machine binding.  Often times, when creating a rug, we purchase extra matching wool serging from the mill so that we can exactly match the color of the wool used in the field of the rug.

Not Your Pottery Barn / Crate & Barrel Sisal Rug

One of our goals at Hemphill’s Rugs & Carpets is to offer items that you will not see everywhere. And certainly not in stores such as Crate & Barrel, Pottery Barn or Williams & Sonoma Home.   In order to do this, we work with lots of different suppliers.  This is especially true in the fabrication of our sisal and natural fiber area rugs.  We have eight different sources for sisal, jute, abaca, seagrass and natural fiber blends.  Some of the fibers here offer a blend of sisal, jute and polypropelyne.  You may also notice, that we found the same source for sisal as those offered in the Lauren Ralph Lauren collection.  The difference is that the rugs designed by Ralph Lauren are offered in standard sizes and are “self” bordered.  With  this collection, we can offer both custom sizes and custom fabricated border treatments.

If you like leather, our showroom offers well over 100’s different leather border options including textured, embossed, smooth, distressed and more.  Our color pallet is beyond compare.  In addition, we also offer Sunbrella fabric, cotton, linen, suede, animal print, printed fabric, tapestry and jute bindings.
