illustration from a book Stotzl made for her daughter, Yael

Gunta Stölzl…what a woman!
the only female master weaver in the Bauhaus weaving workshop…

I feel continually inspired by Bauhaus textiles, their sense of color is so clear and bold without compromising the classic and cozy feel that is intrinsic to anything handwoven. There is a magical sensability to Stolzl’s work, which is why i included one of the illustrations from the fanciful (and extensive) book that she made for her daughter….so special.
