Description/

Maria Kipp was a textile designer born in 1900. She studied in Germany and moved to California in the 1920’s, where she designed textiles until the late 1980’s. Her fabrics, lamp shades and curtains were hand-woven, using natural materials such as wool and linen, including wooden stabs to create stability. Her fabrics were well used by contemporary designers and architects from the US such as Paul Laszlo, Richard Neutra etc. The wall tapestry presented shows bold colors in a geometrical pictures, woven in a monumental size.

Born in Germany, Kipp was the first woman to study at the Staatliche Fachschule für Texitilindustrie (State Academy for the Textile Industry), from where she graduated in 1923 as a textile engineer. In 1924, Kipp and her husband emigrated to the United States without sponsorship. They settled in Los Angeles where Kipp opened a successful studio, Maria Kipp Handweaves, specializing in handwoven furnishing fabrics for 60 years. Modernist architects such as Rudolph Schindler and Richard Neutra sought out her designs for their interiors. Neutra used Kipp's designs in his own home, as did other prominent Southern California architects such as Welton Becket, who commissioned her to create interiors for the Bullock's chain of department stores, and Paul Revere Williams, who partnered with her to create interiors for celebrity homes and the Beverly Hills Polo Lounge.
