text: Initially conceived as a 1926 cotton and silk wall hanging. The original gouache on paper is held in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art. With the belief that aesthetics should be a consideration in every aspect of daily life, Anni Albers (born Annelise Fleischmann) joined the Bauhaus Weaving Workshop as a student in 1922. Though her initial passion lay in painting, women were restricted at that time to textiles, which she nonetheless took to enthusiastically. Experimenting with new materials for weaving, she elevated textile design to a true art form. Rug designer Christopher Farr has brought two Albers designs into production for the first time. They feature a short, dense pile, letting them fit under doors and are crafted from hand-spun wool, which is then hand-tufted in India. Christopher Farr is an active member of Care & Fair, an organisation based in India dedicated to the elimination of child labour in the rug industry and the education of children in weaving areas.
