Picotage is an old-fashioned type of pattern. It is created using a stipple method in textile printing whereby brass pins driven into wooden blocks are used to create highlighted and shadow patterns on the fabric. This method is also known as pinning and is nowadays created using modern technology. Many different motifs and designs can be created in a variety of colours.
