Deadly Ponies and weave queen, Anni Albers, join part-posthumous forces to bring you a striking (and highly collectable) collection of leather goods.

Who is Anni Albers and where does she sit in the cultural landscape? Anni, born in the late 1800s, was a German-born American textile artist and printmaker. One of the most influential of the 20th century, her style is unmistakably ‘Anni’ — colliding the traditional craft of weaving with strikingly modern geometric patterns.

A once-Bauhaus School student, her immense joy from the grid-like format of loom weaving and life-long fascination with abstraction, helped carve her career into the momentous highlight of a solo exhibition at New York’s prestigious Museum of Modern Art (MoMA).

As part of Together Today, we’re chuffed to announce that Deadly Ponies, in collaboration with the Josef and Anni Albers Foundation, release their new collection this Thursday 14 May at 5pm.
