Carpet Whipping

Carpet Whipping

Create made-to-measure rugs and stair runners from your favourite carpet.

If you need a specific sized rug but can’t find what you’re looking for, you’ve come to the right place! With our carpet whipping service, we can make any carpet from our collection into a beautiful bespoke rug or stair runner. Whatever size or shape of rug you need, just let us know and we’ll whip it into shape!

What is carpet whipping?

Carpet whipping is a specialist skill that involves overlocking the edge of the carpet with yarn for a highly professional finish. We also offer carpet binding, where the edge of the cut carpet is taped with a single, double, or piped border for a more contemporary look. The tape comes in a variety of materials such as cotton, linen, and faux leather, and a range of colours to match your décor, giving you the chance to create something that’s completely unique. And rest assured, we only use trusted local carpet whippers who’ve been whipping carpets for years to ensure you receive a stunning rug or stair runner of the highest quality.

Can I use offcuts to make a rug?

This is a great idea to make sure your offcuts don’t go to waste! Carpet whipping is a cost effective and eco-friendly way to use off cuts from your new carpet to make matching protective entrance mats.
