The Point Paper Art CompanyThe Art Behind Textile Point Paper
About Point Paper Art
Prior to the advent of computer aided design (CAD), drawings of woven textile pattern were translated by craftsmen onto special graph paper called point papers. These detailed drawings were then read 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 from their archive collections to breathe new life into this now historical textile craft.
We have a selection of artwork available to purchase. Each print comes with a document explaining their origin and a brief description of their history. The prints can be supplied as a print or framed.

These technical point paper design details could enable Jacquard weavers today to reproduce this design on ‘their’ fabric. We currently have 38 prints available to buy as A3 wall art.
You can see a selection of our prints framed below. If you would like to see them in “real life” you can see them on display at the Cullingworth Antiques Mill www.antiquesatthemill.com
