Description

cotton

Cotton is made from the vegetal fibres surrounding the seeds of the cotton plant. Traces of cotton were found in Ancient Egypt and in Mexico, possibly over 7,000 years old. Cotton culture developed in America, Africa and Eurasia. While it reached Europe as early as the IInd century BC, its history on that continent truly began with the creation of the West India trading companies. From then on, the culture of cotton never stopped growing and it is now the most used natural fibre in the world. More difficult to weave than linen because of its short fibres, it has a higher density. Cotton is a very good insulation material thanks, in particular, to its exceptional moisture absorption properties. It is warm, soft, comfortable. PINTON weaves this staple of the textile industry on its own or combined with other materials for the Couture as well as the Diffusion lines. In tapestry making, cotton is very rarely used on its own and is most often combined with other materials. It is generally the material used for the warp thread.

Cotton 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.

the jacquard

The Jacquard loom was developed by Joseph Marie Jacquard in the early 19th century. PINTON Jacquard’s sophisticated technique can weave up to 105 threads per cm2, allowing for a large span of textures, designs and colours. Indeed, despite the number of colours on each loom being limited to 7 or 8, the crossing of the threads offers an extensive range of colours and hues, hence more than 500 possible colours per loom. In addition, this particular technique makes Jacquard fabric extremely resistant to deformation by stretching and to tearing.

Adaptable to various supports, Jacquard fabric can be plain with placed patterns or in « all-over », in other words a continuous and regular repetition of patterns over the entire surface. The PINTON Jacquard is manufactured in 6 stages, from the warping to the finishing touches, including the design of the cartoon which, nowadays, with the assistance of computer software, allows for a very fine weave.  

Pinton

While the history of PINTON is punctuated with fruitful collaborations and fascinating encounters, it is also marked by the wealth of talents in its midst. For over a decade, a team of 4 creatives coming from diverse backgrounds devote their time to designing rugs and carpets for the PINTON manufactory. Driven by shared curiosity, constant research and dialogue, the team is continually enriching the firm’s collections with new patterns or designs, combinations of materials and colours, as well colour variations. Capturing trends, listening to customers’ wishes, in direct connection with the company’s history and located under the same roof as the craftspeople and the workshops, at the crossroad of the creative and production processes, the PINTON team of designers are at the heart of the business.
