Originally created on paper at the Bauhaus in the 1920s, this floor covering (or wall hanging) is the work of Gunta Stölzl. Known worldwide for her textiles, Stölzl was one of the few women to teach at the Bauhaus, and the only woman to hold a senior role on the faculty. During her 12 years on campus, she made the Weaving Workshop her own, explored ways to reinvent weaving, and in the process, evolved it from craft to industrial design.
