Concept

Iconic textile motifs merge and emerge in Patterns, a set of three dishtowels by Claire Vos. A traditional French pattern dissolves into a pattern from Dutch folk art, while Scottish plaid melds into an Asian theme and a Greek key turns into a checkered pattern. The patterns go through their choreography in graphic black and white, but a stripe of bright red, blue, or green extends across the fabric.

The tablecloth and napkins explore the innate qualities of damask cloth, one of the oldest weaving patterns in the world. For her variation, Vos has chosen a light-grey Scottish plaid that dissolves and reassembles over an expanse of cream-colored linen fabric. The plaid is large-scale in the tablecloth, and smaller in the napkins.
