Whipped edge

Carpet whipping

Carpet whipping is the process of edging or binding carpets by stitching the sides using yarn or wool to create a durable, high quality finish. The carpet edges are overlocked with wool yarn for strength and a neat appearance. To ensure the best results, this is traditionally done by hand using a mchine called an 'overlocker'.

If you need carpet whipping for your carpet in London, Cavendish devere offers this service as part of our extensive carpet and rug offerings. Serving both commercial and residential clients, we can tailor the whipping to match your specific carpet needs and for those tricky sisal, seagrass and jute runners we can attach hemp backing tape to ensure a long lasting finished edge.

Our skilled carpet whipping delivers prompt, efficient service resulting in durable, great-looking edges.

Cotton border edge

Carpet tape binding and borders

Tape binding is the process of stitching various widths and materials of tape to the edges of carpets to create a finished look. If you need rug binding in London, contact us first. We stock tape in an array of colors and fabrics including faux leather, suede, cotton basketweave, cotton herringbone, linen, jute, and even real leather to suit any carpet.

A border attached to the edge of a stair runner or rug will make it look fantastic. Get in touch with us today to learn more about how tape binding can provide a custom finish for your carpet edges to create your perfect rug.

Mitred cotton borders for rugs

A mitred border on a rug refers to a specific type of edge finishing technique. The term "mitre" (or "miter" in American English) typically describes a joint made between two pieces at an angle of 45 degrees, so that together they form a right angle (90 degrees). In the context of rug making, this technique is used to create the borders. When a rug has a mitred border, the border fabric or material is cut at a 45-degree angle at the corners. This allows the edges of the border to join neatly, forming a precise and clean corner that resembles the corners of a picture frame. This technique is aesthetically pleasing and can add a refined look to the rug. It's particularly effective for rugs with a distinct border pattern or color, as it ensures that the design flows seamlessly around the corners without breaking or distorting the pattern.
