PINTON

Founded in 1867, France’s Maison PINTON has established itself as one of the world’s greatest references for exceptional rugs and tapestry. Excellence and creativity are the hallmarks of this family business with its centuries-old know-how.

An expert at combining tradition and modernity, PINTON is committed to contemporary creation. The establishment has always collaborated with great contemporary artists and renowned designers for its editions of rugs and art tapestries: Pablo Picasso, Joan Miró, Salvador Dali, Jean Cocteau, Fernand Léger, Alexander Calder, Le Corbusier, René Magritte, and more recently, Fernando Botero, Beatriz Milahzes and Etel Adnan. Maison PINTON was taken over in 2002 by Lucas Pinton, heir to the fifth generation, who continues unique collaborations with new artists and designers to revive the colours of contemporary tapestry. Created and produced by tradespeople and the work of elite designers, PINTON’s contemporary rugs stay ahead of the field by releasing new textures, geometries and bold graphics, unusual reliefs and daring chromatic alliances.

 PINTON’s textile works are presented at the Venice Biennale, the FIAC in Paris and at Art Basel, as well as other Contemporary Art events, and exhibited in various galleries and museums around the world.This reaffirms PINTON's place in the international art market and makes these unique rugs excellent investments. As well as the Parisian gallery, Pinton, which has just opened a new showroom in Nice, has also set up subsidiaries and showrooms in New York and Hong Kong.

Acquiring a PINTON rug means treating yourself to the creation of an artist, interpreted by a passionate craftsman. Still based on the historic site of Felletin, in Creuse, the factory is still the beating heart of the establishment’s know-how, renowned throughout the world, and which has retained its logo designed by Le Corbusier. The Pinton factory is one of the last to continue the tradition of low-warp tapestry in Felletin. Some techniques have hardly changed for centuries: the craftsman's art requires the same precision, in the purest tradition of Aubusson rugs and tapestries. Traditionally made with lockstitch, PINTON has innovated by introducing the technique of gun tufting. PINTON is the only manufacturer in France to offer this quality of tufted rugs in addition to lockstitch. PINTON rugs continue the Aubusson tradition by using local wool and very fine threads, usually used in tapestry. PINTON can thus offer exceptional rugs of infinite subtlety.

At PINTON, know-how isn’t a cliché. Fully mastered techniques, sensitive, passionate men and women, particular attention paid to the origin of materials as well as the materials themselves, promoting the exchange of skills and knowledge, all this and more contributes to the establishment’s expertise.Further enhanced by obtaining the Living Heritage Company label and the Geographical Indication Aubusson Rugs and Aubusson Tapestry, the PINTON factory is today an undeniable reference. It remains above all a family business, run by men and women who share the same passion for their profession and the same desire to pass on and share their knowledge.

Craftsmen, artists and designers fashion their creations with the greatest respect for tradition, yet none restrict themselves with a backward-looking vision of their profession. On the contrary, PINTON doesn’t hide its curiosity, its deep attraction for inventiveness, combining past and future, tradition and innovation. This is how exceptional rugs spring from its looms. Phosphorescent threads, vinyl, rubber, rugs with oval shapes, hypnotic figures, plants, suggestions, photos, street art: many areas remain to be explored, whether in terms of materials, formats or design! Especially since through its role as manufacturer, PINTON continues to question the precision and fidelity of the transcription of a design into textile material.

PINTON has always managed to reflect its times. Sharing its know-how with yachting and aviation, and the carpet market from the 1940s, collaborating with contemporary artists for very modern creations, introducing unusual materials into weaving, particularly for its Haute-Couture collection, and using new techniques such as gun tufting, PINTON has never stopped innovating. The creation of its Studio Lab in 2021 is further proof of this.

For PINTON, sustainable development and ethics are concerns inherent in the way it operates. The family business pays constant attention to its contribution to preserving the environment, working, for example, on recovery and recycling. It’s also supportive of social progress and human rights, with particular attachment to transmission, communication, exchange and dialogue with its teams, partners and suppliers. Ethics and responsible purchasing are also critically important to the establishment. Indeed, the latter promotes short delivery circuits and materials of French and European origin, among its other actions in this area. Finally, PINTON is committed to respecting national and international laws concerning business ethics.
