Description

wool

Wool is an animal fibre, most often derived from sheep fleece. Wool was already being spun as early as 5,000 BC. In Roman times, wool, leather and linen were the main materials used to make clothes. With the progressive development of mechanical processes and the evolution of breeding techniques, wool became the economic lung of several countries in the Xth century, and again in the XIIth. Renowned for its thermal and sound insulation properties, wool also offers the advantage of absorbing moisture. It is a noble and timeless material, used from time immemorial for its strength and durability. PINTON uses local wool with shorter carded fibres, which make it fluffier and give it more volume, or a specific type of wool from New-Zealand with long combed fibres that are more resistant to heavy traffic. Both types of wool are spun (carded or combed) and dyed in the spinning plant located in Felletin. Whether they are made in 100% pure virgin wool or blended with other materials like linen, silk, bamboo, leather or many others, PINTON wool rugs and carpets bring comfort and quality.

hand tufted

La technique du tuftage main est un procédé qui mêle savoir-faire ancestral et outil de tissage moderne. En effet, sur le canevas parfaitement tendu sur un métier vertical, l’artisan reporte à la main le graphisme du futur tapis avec la plus grande précision. L’implantation des fils, brin par brin, se fait manuellement à l’aide d’un pistolet sur l’envers du canevas, en suivant les couleurs, le dessin et les différentes hauteurs de mèche. PINTON a fait preuve d’innovation en étant l’une des premières manufactures à utiliser la technique du tuftage au pistolet pour la fabrication de certains de ses tapis et pour la fabrication de certaines de ses moquettes. C’est l’unique manufacture française à offrir une telle qualité de tapis tufté. Cette technique permet une production plus rapide que le tissage au point noué. Enfin, le tuftage main offre un large éventail d’épaisseurs possibles. La méthode du carving permet ensuite de sculpter la laine et créer des reliefs sur le tapis ainsi tissé. Dès le début des années 90, PINTON s’est spécialisée dans la réalisation de tapis tuftés main pour lesquels elle collabore aussi avec des designers et des artistes célèbres.

Anna-Paola
Civardi

Anna-Paola Civardi is an Italian painter and architect living and working in Paris. After graduating from the Politecnico di Milano in Milan and the École de Peinture Décorative Artemisia in Paris, she worked for major interior architecture firms such as Antonio Citterio in Milan and Jean-Michel Wilmotte in Paris. In 2015, she partnered with Fabrizio Fiorentino to create and co-manage an agency, united by a same predilection for simple and elegant aesthetics with a touch of Italian flair! Receptive to nature and its meditative qualities, Anna-Paola Civardi considers every interior as a place fostering well-being and creativity, paying particular attention to colours and materials since they play a key role in this. She sees painting as breathing in and out, a meditation during which thoughts and images come in quick succession and combine, a movement in which shapes and colours relate to different emotions. It is this unusual approach that convinced PINTON to collaborate with Anna-Paoli Civardi.
