Bond Products offers our customers a wide range of carpet binding products and options in both binding tapes and Instabind. One of our recent binding additions offers the attractive, finished look of leather in a more affordable and long lasting form. This is our faux leather Instabind and faux leather carpet binding.
Many designers and customers enjoy the look of leather. It’s a timeless design option and looks especially nice as a wide carpet border. Leather binding can be expensive and challenging to manufacture, though. As an animal product, it’s limited in size, has to be tanned, and will always have seams. It also has a tendency to dry out and crack over time. This is why we offer our faux leather products.
Faux Leather Instabind and Carpet Binding
Our faux leather products offer the attractiveness of leather at a lesser price and with excellent wear resistance. Made of vinyl, they mimic standard binding but without any stitches showing. Our faux leather bindings are available in 14 different stock colors and more durable than traditional carpet binding. In fact, their durability helps to reinforce the carpet backing along its cut edges.
To apply faux leather Instabind, you only need carpet scissors and a hot glue gun. We do recommend using latex-based hot-melt glue sticks for this type of project. This kind of glue provides a strong and lasting hold. Instabind is available by the roll in standard 48-foot lengths or in custom-sized lengths for an up charge. Faux leather Instabind is 5/16” in diameter.
If your business offers carpet finishing, we do recommend using our faux leather binding for custom wide borders on high-end rugs. The finished product looks fantastic at an affordable price. The faux leather binding is cut to order from 1 inch to 6 inches, and rolls are 49 feet long. We offer it in 14 colors and three styles: Falcone, Fresh, and Festival. This product has a vinyl face and a cotton backing.
We recommend using our Model PBL-TX Wide Tapestry Binder to create the wide carpet binding. This machine allows for sewing wide tapestry borders of up to 6.5” on the face. Blind stitch the wide border on, and flip and glue it to the back side of the rug for a beautiful and classic looking rug. This machine allows you to add income to your workroom or retail store business. You can charge $7 to $9 and up per linear foot of binding.
