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.

tencel

Tencel®, which is a registered trademark and another name for lyocell, is produced from wood pulp, usually eucalyptus. It emerged very recently in the textile industry: made for the first time at the end of the 1980s, it was marketed in 1992. Produced in Europe, this material is particularly innovative. Its production process is very quick since it takes only two hours from wood harvesting to spinning. Cultivating the timber necessary to its production is a particularly clean process: it needs very little water and no pesticides. This textile fibre is very soft to the touch, elastic, resistant and durable. It has excellent moisture absorption properties while remaining dry on the surface. Lyocell lends itself perfectly to blending with other materials and gives PINTON rugs a very smooth contemporary twist.

Alexandra
Roussopoulos

Alexandra Roussopoulos is a Swiss/Greek artist born in Paris. She studied at the Camberwell College of Art in London and the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris. Interested in the issue of transmission, shared experience and engagement, she teaches in the Prép’art preparation school and participates in many workshops in France and abroad. In her paintings, she questions the dialogue between shapes, colours and space. Since the beginning, her work has been bearing witness to the importance of relationships with other people. She collaborates regularly to art projects and takes part in many artists residencies in China, Greece, Ireland, Slovenia and Algeria.

A powerful interaction between shapes and colours is at play in her essentially abstract pieces, painted with a wide brush, expressing both structure and spontaneity. PINTON was immediately seduced by Alexandra Roussopoulos’s paintings, with one idea in mind: laying her art on the floor. The family business and the artist collaborated on a first collection of rugs, woven with a mix of materials and displaying Alexandra Roussopoulos’s trademark beautiful textures, colours and shapes.

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.
