Binding - French Hitch Whipping

Sands Carving Studio


Bind your taonga with a French Hitch Whipping. 

French Whipping is very similar to whipping but it differs in that each wrap around the rope is done with a half hitch instead of simply wrapping around the rope. This results in an attractive design of the half hitch knots within the whipping.

Binding services are on a first come, first serve basis. Typical turnaround time for binding is 5 business days. If you require same day or expedited binding, we do offer this service for an additional 20% surcharge of the original binding price. 

Shipping times will vary based on location. 

- If you are in the Hamilton service area, you are free to come by anytime Monday-Friday 9 am to 5 pm at the address listed above to drop off your taonga for any of our services.

- If you are outside of the Hamilton service area, please courier your item to:


Sands Carving Studio

202 Seddon Road Mareoa, Waikato, Hamilton

You can also send a self addressed parcel bag/box, or alternatively- we can use our courier service and send an invoice via email for shipping upon completion.
