Vintage 70s Bouquet Point Paper

SKU: LS102
  • Date: Est 1976

    Origin: Bradford, UK


    This 1976-point paper (design ref ESS 1623 v.2) was part of a group of speculative designs created by furnishing fabric weaver E&S Smith, Bradford.

    The original sketch artist is unknown but it was the design house, Bentley Walbank in nearby Bingley, who was used to create the point paper from a sketch of the design and to plot the 6 weaves instructed.

    Details from the original work for this pattern list that it required 2 Jacquard engines 2/304 hooks to form the wide repeat. The timesheet for the conversion to punch cards (576 px) states 4 hours which was shared by 2 different ladies.

    The fabric quality was a slow weaving job with a weft setting of 50 picks per inch on a shuttle loom that ran at 90 picks per minute!
