In Austria at the dawn of the twentieth century, a group of avant-garde designers and architects established the Wiener Werkstätte ("Viennese Workshops"), an organization dedicated to the production of aethestically-pleasing utilitarian objects. A significant number of female designers and makers were involved in the Wiener Werkstätte, and today Cooper Hewitt houses many examples of their work, including textiles, ceramics, and a particularly large collection of textile designs.
