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.

Victor
Cadene

Victor Cadene is an artist who practices his art in many different ways. After studying Applied Arts, he quickly became a decorator and scenographer. He designs miniature and decorative scenes where every item is hand drawn before being cut with a scalpel and assembled. In these paper theatres, the diverse influences dear to the artist come through in the profusion of details: the Nabis, Matisse, Paul Poiret or Rococo… His designs include textile pieces, such as a collection of napkins, tablecloths and mural fabric panels imagined for Maison Thévenon and instigated by French Cliché. His work also includes objects like the fans designed for Duvelleroy, or the window displays created for Shang Xia and Hermès or for Diptyque’s Bazar… Fond of the patina of time, of objects that have a history, Victor Cadène pursues multiple projects with enthusiasm, elegance and the ambition to mix his preferred styles, eras and patterns resulting in a multitude of possibilities.

For his first collaboration with PINTON, Victor Cadene created rugs displaying curves and intertwining lines in warm colours, in keeping with his poetic and bountiful universe.

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.
