Claire Gaudion is an artisan textile design company creating rugs, cushions and fabrics inspired by Guernsey’s natural landscape. The brand is driven by the knowledge that characteristics of design can make a positive difference to everyday living. In particular, that nature-inspired colours, patterns and textures can bring balance and wellbeing to home interiors.
“Nature has always been my biggest inspiration. Observing its rhythms of light, shadows, colours, textures and scale, and understanding its effect on our wellbeing is something that I’m instinctively drawn to.” Claire Gaudion
Growing up in Guernsey, Claire was surrounded by nature’s colours and textures. And, being introduced to natural textile design from a young age, Claire became fascinated with the way materials impact how we feel, and enrich our daily experiences. Current research around the concept of Biophilic design advocates that bringing nature and references to nature indoors can really benefit our well-being. Specifically, using a diversity of nature references - including colour, pattern and texture – is evidenced to have significant and positive roles to play. This research underpins our modern day approach to textile design.
ARTISAN FABRICS AND CUSHIONS
Our cushions and fabrics are designed and hand woven by Claire at our studio. Hand weaving is part of her design process, exploring the interaction of colours and the effects of different weave structures at the loom. Once the designs are finalised, hand woven samples and weaving instructions are sent to our specialist mills in the UK and Pakistan for the fabrics to be woven. We also have a range of printed cotton and linen fabrics, in modern rhythmic patterns and abstract geometric designs, printed in the UK.
Our rugs are made in collaboration with Netherlands-based company, Momo Rugs, who bring four decades of experience in the rug industry to our partnership. Each rug is designed by Claire and then crafted by our artisan makers in India and Europe.
We love to work with sustainable and natural fibres, to make luxuriously soft wool rugs, exquisitely crafted. And, new to our collections for 2020 are our Recycled Plastic Bottle Rugs, beautiful hand woven rugs made from repurposed plastic, but which feel like wool.
STOCKED COLLECTIONS OR CUSTOM MADE
If you can’t find what you’re looking for in our stocked collection, Claire can work with you to create your own custom made rug. Whether you want to modify an existing design or create something completely new and one-of-a-kind, Claire takes you on a unique rug design journey.
