“The Felletin workshop has welcomed and worked with the greatest artists, from Calder to Botero. These great names in international art have enjoyed spending time with our weavers.”
Located in Felletin, close to the famous town of Aubusson – the cradle of French tapestry, which is included on UNESCO’s “Intangible Cultural Heritage List” – the PINTON workshop weaves Aubusson tapestries, carpets and rugs in compliance with the finest traditions of the craft. The workshop is now the only one perpetuating the tradition of tapestry-making from France’s historic county of Marche. The company has been awarded the “Living Heritage Company” label, a mark of recognition awarded by the French State to promote companies that perpetuate outstanding craftsmanship and industrial expertise and support French-made products. PINTON is also a member of the “Luxury & Excellence” association that brings together companies in the Limousin region from the world of luxury manufacturing. These distinctions are references for customers and consultatns in search of professionals recognised for their respect for the trade as well as their outstanding craftsmanship.
