Claire Vos was predestined to become a textile designer. As she says, "The love of textiles is in my blood. Production of textiles and ceramics has been in my family for generations." She specializes in re-interpreting traditional techniques and forms, paying close attention to the quality of the materials she uses. Her source of inspiration may be an Indonesian ikat weave or a Dutch woolen blanket, but the end result will be completely contemporary, almost graphical or industrial.
A 1991 graduate of Design Academy Eindhoven, Vos studied her craft in Italy, Switzerland, and Indonesia before settling in the Netherlands. Today she shares a studio with her husband, designer Roderick Vos.
