Carpet binding is the process of finishing the edges of a rug, either with stitching or fabric (usually polyester) or adhesives. It keeps the edges from fraying or unraveling, giving it a certain tailored look.
It's fast, inexpensive, and the answer to an odd-shaped room with a lot of protrusions! Standard stock rugs come in limited shapes and sizes, so it's not often possible to accommodate it with standard, but when it’s custom, you can create anything you want.
Carpet binding helps reduce waste since you don't have to dispose of any most leftover carpet from a new installation. It also saves money; some rugs, like Persians or Orientals, can be expensive to replace, but you can salvage a piece of the carpet. It also addresses sentimental value; sometimes, a rug is worn, but you can't part with it being a family heirloom.
