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.

bamboo

Bamboo fibre is a recent newcomer in the textile industry. It is made from bamboo paste: part of the bamboo pulp is dissolved to produce a thick liquid called viscose, which is then filtered and extruded through a plate with tiny holes to form continuous threads. Bamboo has a much higher yield than any other natural fibre. The culture of the bamboo plant requires no chemicals and offers a formidable capacity for carbon storage, while producing large quantities of oxygen. In addition to its environmental credentials, bamboo captures moisture and proves very resistant. Finally, it is exceptionally soft and welcoming. In the PINTON Manufacture and PINTON Edition divisions, bamboo has its place in the composition of the rugs to which it lends its unique properties and shine!

Bamboo can be used in loop weave where the continuous thread forms loops on the surface of the rug, or in pile weave where the threads on the surface of the rug are cut. It can also be woven as loop and cut which combines both techniques.

Jean
Boggio

Jean Boggio is a French goldsmith whose reputation expands well beyond his native country’s borders. As a craftsman and contemporary artist, some of his work draws inspiration from his childhood drawings, such as the Château or Architecture rings. Nourished by the tales of Perrault or the One Thousand and One Nights that he used to listen to as a child, Jean Boggio enjoys telling stories through his creations, where dreams and fantasy meet. He also applied himself to the decorative arts, designing wallpapers, furniture, tapestries and glass, ceramic and crystal pieces. He imagined collections for the greatest French houses like Daum, Bacarat or Haviland where he was art director for 4 years. He also works a lot with Asia, especially Taiwan, but it is in the heart of the Beaujolais wine country that he enjoys working, far from urban turmoil, in surroundings more conducive to developing his imagination.

It was natural that such an artist would one day collaborate with PINTON, creating rugs to share his vision and know-how.

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.
