Marianne Straub

Marianne Straub was born in September 1909 in Amriswil, Switzerland. Between 1928–1931 she studied handloom weaving at Art College in Zurich. In September 1932 Marianne moved to England to study at Bradford’s Technical College, undertaking an intensive training course in cloth construction for a year. By the end of the course she’d become one of the few textile designers in Britain during the 1930s with a background in both aesthetic and practical design.

I’m gonna admit her work isnt my favourite, but its full of colour, something i strive for in my work. Her work has a lot of meaning behind it as well, which i find very interesting. Its got that ‘spark’ which i love!

I can not for the life of me find decent quality pictures of her work, so I apologize 🙂
