Anni Albers, a German printmaker and textile artist, designed a series of Textiles in the 1920s. Albers began experimenting with textiles in weaving when she was a student at the Bauhaus. Her work was ground-breaking and inspirational because her attention to detail and composition made her pieces stand out. Her textiles were seen as works of art. Her weavings were exhibited next to fine arts sculptures and paintings in the 1950s.
