Les Ateliers Pinton of Felletin, France, is bringing more than 100 years of the Pinton art of weaving carpet and tapestries to business aviation. The firm was at the Aircraft Interiors Expo in Hamburg with samples of its work, including examples by renowned designer Ulrika Liljedahl, who draws inspiration from the plants and minerals.

Since 2008 Liljedahl has created a unique collection of carpet designs, mixing modern materials and yarns such as rubber, metal threads and vinyl with silk and wool blends.
