From standard overlocking to the sleek narrow tape binding and the popular designer 3- inch and 5-inch jute/cotton tapes, our carpet binding division can turn every carpet piece into either a practical mat or tasteful area rug depending on the clients end-use.
We are your carpet binding and carpet overlocking specialists based in Christchurch and servicing the wider Canterbury region,
Overlocking is the most common carpet finish for carpet edging and provides lovely border when the woollen yarn thread is matched to the body of the carpet synthetically to create the mats required.
Carpet binding often refers to a tape binding finish, we are to offer a selection of different tape bindings, in a variety of widths, fabrics and more importantly colours that enhance the edged rug.
As part of our suite of carpet edging suite of finishes, we also provide a fringing or tassel service, which adds another aspect to the carpet finishes.
We operate our rug binding business from a specialist workroom that allows us plenty of space for edging carpet as we turn leftover carpet scraps into practical mats and area rugs depending on a customers preference and requirements
If you have just had new carpet laid in your home, it is highly likely the carpet layer has left you some carpet leftover.
Why not turn these off-cuts into practical made-to-measure rugs. Just tell us what size you want your finished item. We will cut it to size and bind the edges in a matching or contrasting colour of your choice.
Examples of areas that might need work or protection mats include the front and back doors, by the fire, under the dining table, in front of the kitchen sink, where the dog sleeps, and in the internal access way from the garage.
We have a large workroom and are able to cater for large pieces -up to 3 x 7.2 m
We are also able to re-finish clean rugs too.
We are able to finish rugs that are not just squares or rectangles. We have completed rugs that fit into caravans, motorhomes, boats, car boots and fire hearth surrounds.
Many of our customers are either businesses with office and reception areas, or government entities such as schools, and rental accommodation providers where we have bound carpets to create area rugs that are fit for the purpose such classrooms or to protect the investment of the flooring the rug is laid on.

"As a landlord with mulitple properties with polished floors, using the large bound squares available at Rugs for All has my made my life easier. When Tenants vacate a property if the rug is ruined beyond repair or unable to be cleaned.

A long term loyal customer shares why he uses Carpetbinders
I want to share my experience if using Carpetbinders Ltd, I have used their services for over 20 years from when they were in Colombo Street in the central city, then Montreal Street in Christchurch and post the earthquake of 2011 in Rangiora.
Now they are back in Christchurch; I used their convenient pickup and return delivery service.
They are the most professional and knowledgeable people in the carpet binding trade, but most importantly they are friendly and helpful, and this has not changed over the last two decades.
I wish them well at their new location in Sockburn, Christchurch and would highly recommend this company to anyone wanting their carpet edged.
