Serging is when yarn, either wool or nylon, is wrapped around the edge of a carpet. This gives any piece of a carpet a sleek, finished look. This style of finish is best for wool or woven goods. We can serge by hand or machine.

Reducer edging is mainly used for commercial applications and on entry mats to create a small slope. We have several options for colors and styles of reducer edging.
Cotton and Linen are the most common material for wide binding. Wide binding can allow for more design flexibility because any type of fabric, leather, color, or pattern can be used. The width of the binding can be customized. Wide binding is durable and appropriate for any kind of carpet. Wool and woven goods do well with a wide binding.
The following are examples of wide binding options we carry:
We can apply fringe to any style of carpet. We have many options to choose from; here are a couple examples.
This service is for clients who want to create a custom rug with a carpet field and a carpet border(s).
Carpet base is carpet that runs around the base of a wall. It is usually about 5 inches wide and is generally only used in commercial applications.
We can repair a carpet by replacing old binding, replacing the backing, or cutting off the damaged area and re-binding it. No appointment is necessary. If you have a rug that needs to be repaired, bring it to our location and you can get a quote on site.
– Rubber backing works best for rugs that will go on top of a hard surface like wood, tile, or vynl flooring.
– Non slip backing adds slight cushion for rugs going over existing carpet, this can work on hard surfaces too. It can be attached or loose laid.
– Non slip rug pads are cut separate for a loose lay. This fourth of an inch thick padding has one rubberized side to keep your rug from moving.
Beveling is a way to give a rug dimension by carving it. This technique is most appropriate for edges of thick or shag carpet. It works well for creating a border, outlines, or accentuating a design. Here you see a relief pattern in solid cut pile.
