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. Visible tape width varies, but will be as narrow as each texture allows whilst ensuring longevity. We colour match velvet or cotton tape closely to the rug centre to create a stylishly, understated finish. Visible tape for standard blind hem is 2-6mm, dependent on range. Arani & Almora blind hem approximately is 12mm visible, image available on request please contact us.
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, Alcantara® or velvet borders that you can choose from. Standard border width is 5 – 6cm, however you can create a wider statement border of up to 13cm from our velvet colours. Please note that our leather borders are made from real hides so joins may be visible.
