The Art behind Textile Point Paper
Before the advent of computer-aided design (CAD), drawings of woven textile patterns were translated by craftsmen onto special graph paper called point papers. It was these detailed point paper drawings that were then read by textile technicians who cut the weaving instruction cards that were placed onto the weaving looms.
To delight the curious, the Point Paper Art Company has selected designs from their archive collections to breathe new life into this historical textile craft. They are proud to bring the lost craft of point paper drawing and its beautiful art from textile history to a new audience.
