made to measure
Jacaranda can make all ranges in bespoke rug sizes. Our inhouse workshop specialises in adding high quality, understated edges to transform our beautiful carpets into made-to-measure rugs. We can add contrasting yarns or bolder border tapes too. Handwoven collections can be made to size in India with a hand-sewn edge.
Please choose the texture, size and one of the edging options below; then contact a Jacaranda stockist for a quote.
We use a needle to sew edges by hand, with the same-coloured wool or TENCEL™ from which each rug is made. All Jacaranda’s stock rugs have hand-sewn edges. Bespoke rugs can be hand-sewn too.
Blind hemming is so called as the stitching is invisible and the tape gives a subtle edge to the rug. We colour match velvet or cotton tape closely to the rug centre to create a stylishly, understated finish. Visible tape width varies, but will be as narrow as each texture allows whilst ensuring longevity. The exceptions are Arani & Almora which due to their construction require a ‘wide’ blind hem, details available on request.
The edges of all but Jacaranda’s thickest bouclés can be overlocked in our workshop. For our TENCEL™ ranges we use the same yarn as the pile, or customers can use our TENCEL™ pom box to choose contrasting colours. We whip wool ranges in carefully matched wool yarn for a subtle, stylish finish.
Visit the made-to-measure page of our website to see the range of leather, cotton, linen or Alcantara® borders that you can choose from. Standard border width is 5 – 6cm. Please note that our leather borders are made from real hides so joins may be visible.
