Design is fine. History is mine.

Imagine a time with no computers.
Josef Frank, Textile design Bows, 1929/1960. Sweden.

Bows was produced in 1960 after an early design for a carpet for Haus & Garten from 1929. Unlike his designs for printed fabrics, which were entirely inspired by nature, Frank’s carpet designs were based on paving patterns and other abstract geometrics. The design itself is in the Backhausen archives in Vienna. Source Cooper Hewitt
