Vintage 70s Honeysuckle Point Paper

SKU: LS099
  • Date: Est 1976

    Origin: Bradford, UK


    This 1976-point paper (design ref 1617) was part of a group of speculative designs created by furnishing fabric weaver E&S Smith, Bradford.

    The original sketch artist is unknown however 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 9 weaves instructed.

    A number of variations of the design repeats were created in woven fabric by clever card-cutting techniques that mirrored and half-drop repeated the basic design. (See our Lifesize wall art LS097 and LS098 for other variations of the design). 

    These patterns required 2 Jacquard engines to form the wide repeat. The timesheet for the design states 12 hours and its conversion to punch cards (408 picks) states 6 hours 15 minutes.

    The fabric weft setting was 50 per inch on a shuttle loom that ran at 90 picks per minute!
