The life expectancy of a Persian rug’s edges is merely a fraction that of the life expectancy of the rug itself. Much like you’d replace the tires on your car, your rugs will at some point need to have the edges attended to in order to maintain your oriental carpet. On your typical rug, you have four sides, two of which will be fringed, and the other two which will be bound. (You can find out about fringe repair here. link to fringe page). The binding, or surging as it is sometimes called, consists of the fibers wrapped around the outermost weft threads of the rug. Persian rug binding helps to preserve the integrity of your rug and to prevent unraveling and wear.
