When it comes to rugs, leather borders offer a distinguished and contemporary look. Whether it’s natural or faux leather, there are many options for texture and color.  Colony Rug offers samples of smooth and distressed leather bindings in a variety of neutrals and bright colors!

Over the past few years, our fabricators have mastered the technique of applying nail heads to all different types of rug borders! Nail heads add another element of uniqueness to area rugs. They can add interest to a neutral area rug or compliment a pattern. Leather borders with nail heads create an elegant custom look in any space. Our fabricators have applied nail heads to area rugs and also on carpet for stairs!
