TAKE ME BACK Tuesday - Bernat Klein
TAKE ME BACK Tuesday - BERNAT KLEIN - I saw these beautiful colored woven pieces on Pinterest and had to find out more! "Bernat Klein (1922-2014) was born in Serbia. In 1940 he attended the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design, Jerusalem, and then moved to the University of Leeds, England, where he studied textile technology from 1945. In 1952 he established Colourcraft (Gala) Ltd. at Galashiels in the Scottish Borders, producing rugs and other items which were sold at the com...pany’s own shop in Edinburgh. Klein based himself at his home near Selkirk where he commissioned a studio building from the architect Peter Womersley who also designed Klein’s house, High Sunderland. Klein’s company went on to supply his signature colorful tweeds, incorporating mohair and ribbons, to fashion houses in Europe including Chanel, Dior, Pierre Cardin and Yves Saint Laurent throughout the 1960s." Just gorgeous, and his color choices are highly inspiring! And his studio (see photo)....GAH!
