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.

Stéphanie Mercier lives and works in Paris. After graduating from the Ecole des Arts Décoratifs of Paris with a specialisation in printed images, she became a freelance illustrator and developed a dreamy and very personal universe in graphic novels where she takes centre stage: Tous les jours la grande chose (2009), Créature hormonale (2012) with Editions Piktos and La tristesse du bulbe rachidien (2017). She illustrated magazine articles for Néon, Ça m’intéresse, etc. She also designed several film posters and since 2010 has been teaching drawing and illustration at the Prép’art school. Her work on teenagers, SEUM, in collaboration with photographer Véronique Augry, was exhibited in the Loo&Lou Gallery in Paris and resulted in an eponymous book. She created a series of drawings for children, Enfances, for Atelier Autonome du Livre in Mosset, in the Pyrenees, where her work was exhibited after she took an artist’s residency.

The collection of children’s rugs imagined by Stéphanie Mercier for PINTON includes a rug titled Chouette (owl) after the animal it portrays. For this piece, Stéphanie Mercier suggested weaving phosphorescent threads with the wool. Typical of her delicate and magical vision, this rug invites daydreaming.

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.
