Claire grew up in Guernsey surrounded by nature’s colours and textures. Being introduced to natural textile design and production from a young age, she fell in love with materials and colours and the impact they have on how we feel and their ability to enrich our daily experiences. Claire studied design at the London College of Fashion, part of the University of the Arts London. Upon graduating, Claire worked for a luxury fashion brand but her passion for woven textiles and the weaving process led her to start Claire Gaudion studio.
“Setting up my own business made me dive deep into my ideas and preferences, and think about how I can make a difference with the designs I create. I love the way the colours and textures that we surround ourselves with can have a positive influence on us, and how interiors and textiles can transform a space.”
Claire Gaudion is based in Hampshire. The textile design studio specialises in creating high quality, contemporary rugs and artisan fabrics for interiors. Since 2013, the studio has been committed to the artisans, and their communities, who help create the woven textiles and handmade rugs. As part of Claire’s mission, the studio wants to support textile traditions, skills and craftsmanship so they can be passed on to future generations.
Claire Gaudion rugs are made in collaboration with Momo Rugs who bring four decades of experience in the rug industry. Each rug is designed by Claire and then crafted by artisan makers in India and Europe. Different makers specialise in hand knotted, hand tufted and hand loom flat weaves to ensure exceptional quality is always maintained. Provenance and fair trade is fundamental to company relationships and Momo Rugs are proudly endorsed by Care and Fair.
