The groundbreaking Bauhaus, a German art school that operated from 1919 to 1933, celebrated functional art and design and gender equality – but in practice, women were barred from different disciplines at the school like woodworking, metal and glass. That’s how Anni Albers landed in a weaving workshop under the instruction of Gunta Stölzl, the Bauhaus’ only female master who paved the way in reimagining weaving as a modern, industrial art form. Anni Albers would go on to challenge the pictorial European tapestry tradition with her combination of loom and hand weaving, spontaneous experimentation with the form, and iconic geometric patterns. Our cozy and understated Albers Socks are a nod to the modern and functional spirit of Anni and the Bauhaus – perfect when paired with your favorite faded overalls for a day in the studio.
