Anni Albers Study rug produced by Christopher Farr in association with the Josef and Anni Albers Foundation.
This work was initially conceived in 1926 as a cotton and silk wall hanging. Each rug is hand tufted from millspun wool.
About the Artist
Anni Albers (1899–1994) was a textile designer, weaver, writer and printmaker, who was among the leading pioneers of twentieth-century modernism. Throughout her fruitful career she inspired a reconsideration of fabrics, both in their functional roles and as wall hangings, truly establishing thread and weaving as a valid medium for art. In her later years, Albers took up print-making, translating many of her persistent themes and ideas into two-dimensional form.
About the Maker
Established in 1988, Christopher Farr unites heritage textile craftsmanship with contemporary design. The brand collaborates with artists, designers and their estates to produce handmade rugs that protect and preserve weaving traditions.
All rugs are produced with the relevant institution estate or artist, closely involved in the whole process to ensure that the end result is as faithful to the original work as possible, the same as producing a limited edition print.
