Clara Vuletich

[All images: Clara Vuletich]

I came across Clara Vuletich via Bricolage, which is a collective of London-based textile designers. Clara specialises in hand-printed textiles and wallpapers, and combines traditional printing methods with the latest technology to create striking, modern designs. She is involved in the Textiles Environment Design Project at Chelsea College of Art & Design (my college!). All her work is backed with a concern for the environment and on her website she lists her key environmental principles as:

1. Using recycled materials wherever possible
2. Conscientious use of colour
3. Sourcing of the best sustainable base fabrics and papers
4. Understanding of the ‘life-cycle’ approach to design

I particularly like the geometric printed wallpaper shown in the images above. It works so well across a whole wall as well as on the screen. I love the way sections of the print overlap.
