We are the specialists in carpet edging/ Overlocking/ binding/ fringing. There are many terms for edging rugs. Binding and overclocking rugs are the most common, Overlocking a rug help stop the rug from fraying, it is the same principle with clothing we just use a more heavy-duty machine for the rugs.
In most cases, we cannot overlock older carpet, especially any that has already been fitted. This is due to a build-up of grit inside the pile that can damage the machine, or because the backing loses its sturdiness over time, meaning the stitching will not hold. The same applies to adjusting ready-made rugs, where the backing tends to pull away if cut at all. Of course, if you don’t mind bringing in any pieces you are unsure about, we’ll be happy to assess them first-hand
