Meet the Designer: Thinkling Creative

Claire Wise Thinkling CreativeWe are excited to welcome Claire, the artist behind Thinkling Creative -- and the newest textile designer to joing us on The Textile District! Thinkling Creative is the brainchild of Claire a UK-based graphic and surface pattern designer. Following a long career in stationery design, Claire decided to follow her passion of surface pattern design, setting up Thinkling Creative in 2019. Somewhere amid the piles of sketchbooks, Claire has found her own unique style, somewhat abstract, somewhat loose, but always fun!

I always love to know more about each collection. What inspires the designs, colorways, and especially, their naming. Claire was kind enough to share hers: "When I name my collections, I try and use words / people from my local area or places / people that mean something to me. I always feel my designs are a part of me but also a part of what’s around me so it seems fitting to name my collections that way. In this case (“Valian”) the name is made up of a mixture of my family’s names.

Claire's "Valian Collection" features eight patterns in fresh, contemporary colorways suitable for apparel to home decor! Simply choose the pattern and colorway option you love, and print on the base fabric to suit your exact project needs. As a final touch, we steam, wash, and dry all natural fiber substrates so that you receive soft, beautiful, and colorfast fabrics that are ready to sew, quilt, craft, and more!

We've showcased every colorway option here, making it easy to see and shop her complete collection in our online fabric catalog >> Shop Fabrics by Thinkling Creative
