master of a time-honored expertise in the pure Aubusson tradition.
As far back as the 15th Century, Pinton’s name has been synonymous with Aubusson tapestries. Ever since then, through the generations, the Pinton family has significantly contributed to this fabulous legacy and during the 19th Century, established its mill in Felletin, in the French region of the Creuse. In these workshops, our craftsmen perform the same meticulous artistry, with the same attention to detail to this very day. In doing so, they continue to weave our history in modern tapestry.
By the skillful hands of our craftsmen, the advice of our consultants, the creativity of our designers and dyers and the desire of our customers, the character of our rugs is truly understood! We are the heirs and custodians of a cultural tradition that has always collaborated with major artists. Works of Charles Le Brun, Pablo Picasso, Jean-Michel Othoniel and of other renowned painters, architects and designers have left our looms.
Our Maison being part of the Aubusson tapestry tradition, is also very present in the contemporary art world; a distant step from the old school of wool and silk wall hangings representing hunting scenes.
