Borders

The handcrafted nature of everything we do shines in our exacting edge and corner treatments. Our custom border materials and application processes add a luxurious finishing touch to your rug.

Unless otherwise specified, borders in the following materials will show 2 ½” on the face of the rug. Bordering a rug does not increase the size of the rug. It simply covers 2 ½” of the rug material.

All Natural Rugs’ borders are applied using a blind technique; you will never see topstitching on our finished borders.

We meticulously hand sew each mitered corner with blind stitches as well.

Please call our customer service department to request a custom width border.

Our wide cotton borders are available in a multitude of colors.  Make a statement with a contrasting border or coordinate exactly with the rug material…it’s made to order just for you. Standard width 2 1/2″. Available 2” – 3 ½” Wide
