Eclat was designed by weaver and printmaker Anni Albers. She originally designed it in 1974 as a printed upholstery, but now Knoll Textiles has reintroduced the pattern as a woven textile named Eclat Weave, available from Knoll for $61 per yard.

I absolutely love this fabric and was so excited to spot it in Elle magazine. In fact I’m a big fan of Anni Albers work in general and aim to write another post about her very soon!

    I just found this really great necklace designed by Anni Albers in the 1940’s, made from metal washers and ribbon. Sarah Neuburger of The Small Object figured out how to make it and she shows you how here:
