Anni Albers

Anni Albers was a German-American weaver and textile designer, born in Berlin, and a student at the Bauhaus weaving workshop between 1923 and 1925, studying with Gunta Stölzl. She later recalled that this was not teaching in the formal sense, but sitting down and working out problems of construction together. After marrying Josef Albers in 1925, she taught and was an assistant at the Weaving Workshop. She developed her style of intricate weaves, exploring multi-layered weave constructions, and for her, the integral relationship between construction and pattern.
