DESIGNER FOCUS: Anni Albers
Anni Albers was a German-American weaver and textile designer. Born in Berlin in 1899, she went on to study at the Bauhaus. Discouraged from taking certain classes, Albers enrolled in the weaving workshop and made textiles her key form of artistic expression.
After marrying Josef Albers in 1925, she wrote and taught at the Bauhaus for several years. Anni Albers' creative practice, and her promotion of weaving, had a profound and long-lasting impact on American textile design.
