ART FROM TEXTILE HISTORY

Prior to the advent of CAD, drawings of woven textile pattern were translated by craftsmen onto special graph paper called point papers. These detailed drawings were then red by textile technicians, who cut the weaving instruction cards that were to be placed onto the looms.

To delight the curious, The Point paper Art Company have selected designs fro their archive collections to breath new life into this now historical textile craft.

We are proud to bring the lost craft of point paper drawing and its beautiful art to a new audience.
