Practiced in many cultures, the art of weaving rag rugs has a timeless quality. While they have been traditionally woven with recycled textiles, we create our rugs in a fresh palette of colors and new fabrics, updating the age-old technique to create contemporary rugs for today’s homes. Our leather rugs, woven in the same technique as the rag rugs, are a contemporary spin on tradition.
“My first priority is to create a well designed piece, a functional floor covering that is both beautiful and durable.”
Working in a small production setting for over two decades, Claudia Mills Studio designs and produces one-of-a-kind handwoven rugs. Claudia offers a line of individual designs and custom created site specific rugs. As a designer, Claudia strikes a balance between color, texture and pattern in each floor covering.
Claudia’s custom lines make designing unique rugs easy. Each custom rug begins as a series of drawings with variations in color and composition. Clients are asked to provide color samples in the form of paint chips or fabric swatches of the colors they would like to see in the rug. Floor plans and site photos are helpful if available, and client input is welcome.
When a final design is reached, scaled drawings, fabric swatches and yarn samples are sent to the client for approval. Delivery is determined on approval of the final design. The studio is proud to offer quick turnarounds from order placement to rug completion.
