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.

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.

Marc
Couturier

Born in 1946, Marc Couturier now lives in Paris. He was 38 years old when he came to art, when his first barques (rowing boats) – the subject of many of his later works – were shown to the public. He gained recognition as a sculptor with a vision both poetic and close to realism, his works depicting the world seen through the traces left by time on objects. Self-taught, Marc Couturier casts an unusual eye on the impact that humans have, deliberately or not, on their environment. Later the concept of redressement (recovery) took shape, giving birth to new works: found objects marked by history, given a new artistic life by the artist through what they tell of the passing of time, of the effects of the weather… Followed the lames (blades) series of sculptures at the intersection of minimalism and symbolism, which is where Marc Couturier’s art stands. He is also known for his drawings with a silver point or a lead pencil.

Marc Couturier’s design for PINTON illustrates this desire to transcribe the textural effects left by time on nature and objects.

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.
