Carpet OverlockingAt Onehunga Carpets & Rugs we offer a full overlocking and carpet edging service, and because we have machinists in our factory we don’t out-source your work, meaning we save you time and money.

  • Turn your carpet remnants into rugs or mats
  • Alter the size or shape of your existing rugs or mats
  • Custom made rugs or mats to your specific size or shape
  • Get your worn overlocking re-edged

Bring your carpet remnants into us for overlocking – no appointment necessary.

Discount Carpet Rugs and Mats

We are New Zealand’s largest manufacturer of carpet rugs and mats, supplying outlets nation-wide such as The Warehouse, Mitre 10 and Foodstuffs. Our carpet rugs are made and overlocked on-site, so we always have an extensive range to choose from.

In our showroom we stock a wide range of our standard size carpet rugs and mats perfect for doorways, coffee tables, dining tables, and lounge and bedroom spaces:

  • 90cm x 60cm
  • 120cm x 60cm
  • 150cm x 90cm

  • Cut off the roll length to suit x 70cm

Purchase with confidence using our apro service if you’re unsure of your measurements, or if you can’t decide on which rug is right for your space.

Likewise with our carpet rugs – if you get home and it’s not quite right, be it the colour, style or size, bring it back un-used and we’ll exchange it for something more suitable.

Custom Made Rugs and Mats

Custom made rugs and mats are another option if our standard carpet rug sizes aren’t suitable, or if you’re after something completely custom shaped or cut from template. We can custom make any shape or size for you – choose from our wide selection of short end carpets, or bring in your own product. We can also alter the size of our standard carpet rug sizes for a small fee, and in some cases can even join existing rugs together.


If your rugs or mats are moving around, then we recommend Giltgrip Rug Grip, a non-skid rug adhesive. It can be used on both carpet and hard floors, and is available in 90cm and 180cm widths.
