MZ Wallace X The Josef & Anni Albers Foundation

MZ Wallace × The Josef & Anni Albers Foundation

Featuring quotes on teaching — and learning — from both Josef and Anni Albers, this limited edition Metro Tote is printed in a special typeface developed by Josef Albers during his time at the famed Bauhaus school of design.

100% of the net proceeds from the sale of this special tote support Le Korsa's educational efforts for women in Senegal.

“Empowering women has always been important to our philosophy of giving back to the community, whether on a local or global scale. Ensuring that women have access to an education, and the opportunities that arise from it, is an impactful way to put this philosophy into action. We are thrilled to partner with The Josef & Anni Albers Foundation to support Le Korsa."

 — Monica Zwirner, Cofounder & Designer

Foyer de Tambacounda

“The word ‘thrilled’ applies equally to our feelings about this beautiful and unusual collaboration. The proceeds of this project will go to the Foyer de Tambacounda, a residential facility in Senegal that allows over 135 young women to live in safe surroundings while continuing their education in the local high school. The Foyer, which depends on Le Korsa entirely for its funding, provides these young women with the chance to learn and to choose their futures in an unprecedented way.”

— Nicholas Fox Weber, Head of The Albers Foundation and Founder & President of Le Korsa

The Josef and Anni Albers Foundation

In 1971, Josef Albers established a not-for-profit organization to further "the revelation and evocation of vision through art." Today, this organization is devoted to preserving and promoting the enduring achievements of both Josef and Anni Albers, and the aesthetic and philosophical principles by which they lived. It serves as a unique center for the understanding and appreciation of the arts and of all visual experience — with the combined legacies of Josef and Anni Albers at its heart.
