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.

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.

machine tufted

In carpet production, the technique of machine tufting is the only one produced on a pre-existing backing or dossier (reverse). Tufting involves needling the threads into the backing. The materials used in this process are mainly wool and polyamide. To meet the requirements of their expected use, machine-tufted carpets come in different pile weights per square meter. Machine tufting produces a looped pile or velours bouclé, where threads form continuous loops, a cut pile or velours coupé, where the top of the loops is cut to produce a smooth surface and a softer look, or a structured pile or velours structuré, which combines both techniques and gives different textures. Machine tufted carpets can be plain or printed with any pattern and in any colours. Production times for this type of carpets are very short and production costs are lower. Machine tufted carpets are glued on a levelling compound or underlay, or stretched over an underlay but only for limited areas. For laying in a staircase, please contact the PINTON team for information.

A well-maintained carpet is hoovered very regularly, shampooed periodically and deep cleaned by injection/extraction at least once a year, depending on its use.
