Applied Border Options

Most borders are applied in a two-step process that features invisible stitching. Each border is first sewn into the rug upside down then folded back over the stitching. The border is then manually attached onto the back of the rug, resulting in a rug border with no visible stitching. This combination of machine and hand-craftsmanship provides a rich, clean border appearance.

Narrow:
Border width shows approximately 5/8 inch on the face of the rug. Please not, Narrow borders will have visible stitching.

Medium Visible:
Border width shows approximately 1.5 inches on the face of the rug. Please note, Medium Visible borders will have visible stitching.

Jute Braid:
Border width varies, but shows a minimum of 2.5 inches on the face of the rug. Jute Braid can only be applied to Kochi, Zira, and Bombay Collections.

Woven Tapestry:
Border widths vary but generally show between 5 and 7 inches on the face of the rug.

Padded Miter:
Border widths vary per pattern. This handcrafted technique first applies the border to a special pad, which is then applied to the rug. No sewing is used in this application process. Mitered Corners are standard. The result is a more enhanced border appearance. Chenille Borders require a padded miter application.

Square Corners:
Border corners that overlap and are then stitched together.

Mitered Corners:
Border corners are stitched together at a 45 degree angle. The end result looks much like a picture frame.
