Tufting on a Cloud with Guillaume Neves

Bordeaux, Janvier 2023

SOLLEN is pleased to announce its collaboration with Guillaume Neves of Atelier Paolo for the creation of SOLLEN tufted rugs. For this carpet project, we chose Guillaume Neves, who uses a particular technique in the creation of his carpets: tufting. This technique of artisanal manufacture consists in inserting wool on a tended fabric using a gun with tufter. This art allows us to produce creations with a comfortable and soft design, which correspond to the image of SOLLEN.

There are several methods of tufting, including hand tufting, machine tufting and button tufting. Hand tufting is the most traditional method and involves the use of a tufting gun, which is a hand-held tool used to push the fabric and thread through the backing material. Machine tufting, on the other hand, uses a specialized tufting machine to create the tufts.

Button tufting involves attaching small buttons to the surface of the fabric, which are then secured with thread to create the tufts. One of the main advantages of tufting is that it allows for great flexibility in customization and design. Tufting can be used to create a wide variety of patterns and textures, and it can also be used to add visual interest to a textile. In addition, tufting is a relatively durable and long-lasting decorating technique, making it a popular choice for use in upholstery and other textiles that will be subject to regular wear and tear.

In conclusion, tufting is a decorative technique that consists of using tufts, or small groups of fabric, attached with a thread to a support material. It can be used to create a wide variety of patterns and designs, and is often used to add texture and depth to textiles. Tufting is a durable, long-lasting decorating technique that is commonly used in the manufacture of upholstered furniture and other textiles.
