Rug Binding Guide

Compliment or Contrast Colors; Match your Personal Decor

We offer many different binding options for your natural fiber rug. We recommend the Narrow Cotton Binding for all the weaves and it is standard on all weaves. Swatches of all bindings are available. When you see "Designers Choice" after a binding color, that is the best matching color for the rug you have chosen.

Blind Stitching

Blind Stitching refers to the appearance and sewing of the binding. Blind Stitching means that the stitching (thread) on the top of the binding is hidden. The stitching on both the sides and the mitered corners is hidden. All corners are mitered (finished at an angle-see photo) unless you request a lapped corner. Blind stitching is standard on Leather and Tapestry bindings. It is available as an option for an additional cost on Extra Wide Canvas, Extra Wide Designer Cotton, Linen and Faux Leather bindings. The corner shown is Coco Faux Leather on Sunlight Sun Sisal. Back to Top ^

Top Stitching

Top Stitching refers to the appearance and sewing of the binding. Top Stitching means that the stitching (thread) is on the top of the binding. We match the color of the thread to the binding, so it blends with the binding. The mitered corners of the binding on your area rug are mitered which means they are finished at an angle and top stitched (see photo). Top stitching is standard on Wide Canvas, Extra Wide Canvas, Designers Cotton, Linen and Faux Leather. The corner shown is Honey Extra Wide Canvas Top Stitched on Bambu Boucle Sisal.

C.O.M. Binding (Customer's Own Material)

Provide your own fabric! Our customer's own material (C.O.M) program is very popular and this option has worked well for our customers! Heres how it works: You find the fabric at a local fabric store (or online), buy it, and ship it to us to use in the manufacturing of your rug. We will offer you a quote for applying your fabric on your rug. We'll also tell you how many yards of fabric to buy for the rug you want.

If you are considering using the C.O.M. program, please call us at 1-888-613-1335 or email us at sales@sisalrugs.com for details such as fabric yardage and information that needs to be included with your fabric shipment. Our C.O.M. program has some additional terms to consider:

  • Sisal Rugs Direct does not assume responsibility for lost fabric and does not offer any warranty explicit or implied for customer's own material.
  • C.O.M. orders may not be cancelled once the fabric has been cut.
