The Point Paper Art Company

The 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.
