Bullseye Point Paper

SKU: LS084
  • Date: 5th October 1966

    Origin: Bradford UK


    Bullseye (ref ESS 1168) was drawn up from a sketch by an artist called Keely who E&S Smith used for specific work. The point paper and resulting loom Cards were provided by Wm Rigg, Bradford, West Yorkshire in October 1966. We do not know the end customer.


    E&S Smith chose a mixture of textured weaves to develop this utility fabric. The heavy red area rings are a broken 5 end warp satin surrounding a standard ¼ weft sateen and a tighter 2/1 warp repp.The factory was weaving with Northrop looms which had two Bradford made Samuel Dracup Jacquards above it with 300 hooks on each. The harness had a set of 90 ends per inch with 4 repeats across the 48-inch width. 400 pattern weft cards were set with a 32 pick per inch gear. The resulting soft furnishing fabric had a 6” width x 12” length repeat.
