Vintage 70s Daisy Point Paper

SKU: LS100
  • Date: Est 1976

    Origin: Bradford, UK


    This 1976-point paper (design ref 1618) was part of a group of speculative designs created by furnishing fabric weaver E&S Smith, Bradford.

    Although the original sketch artist is unknown, the design house, Bentley Walbank, in nearby Bingley, was used to create the design point paper from the sketch and to plot the 9 weaves instructed.

    Details, from the original work for this pattern, state that it required 2 Jacquard engines 2/304 hooks to form the wide repeat. There are unfortunately 40 weft picks missing from our original archive but it is possible to imagine the top to the bottom pattern repeat.

    The time sheet for the conversion to punch cards (480 px) states 6 hours and 15 minutes which was shared by 4 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!
