In 2013, Claudia Mills launched a line of surface patterns for housewares and interior products. Her patterns are inspired by her handmade rugs, which she has been weaving in her studio for over 20 years. The patterns that grew out of the rugs are focused on intelligent color blocking and playing tonal gradations off of the texture inherent to woven material. The result is a repeat pattern that is made for print but displays the characteristics of woven fabric.
