Langhorne Carpet in The New York Times Magazine
Acclaimed photojournalist Christopher Payne, who has spent countless hours over the past year photographing the artistry and intricacies of Jacquard Wilton carpet weaving at Langhorne Carpet, has had his work showcased in The New York Times Sunday Magazine. This picture (above) - part of his "celebration of craftsmanship and small-scale manufacturing that are perservering in the face of global competition and evolutions" - depicts the burling perch of the carpet mill. The frame shows a burler seamlessly hand knotting loose ends on newly woven carpet (design: Field Flowers).

U.S. Rep. Michael Fitzpatrick Visits Langhorne Carpet Company
U.S. Rep. Michael (Mike) Fitzpatrick has a new appreciation for the wonders of wool carpet and Langhorne Carpet Company. The Congressman, who represents all of Bucks County, spent several hours at the mill on July 16, and he had quite a tactile textile experience.
Owners Bill and Winnifred Morrow hosted the behind-the-scenes tour that covered every aspect of the production process at one of America's most legendary Jacquard Wilton mills. He even got a sneak peek at the design that will be transformed into new carpet for the U.S. House of Representatives.
We look forward to a return visit when the Congressman will help launch the shuttle to begin weaving that carpet, and update us on his progress toward making sure Made in America products - like Langhorne carpets - can continue to effectively compete on the world stage.
Thank you Congressman Fitzpatrick from all of us at Langhorne Carpet!
