This cotton, screen-printed textile by Eszter Haraszty dubbed Tracy was introduced in 1952. When the curatorial team began its research, the Knoll archives only went back to 1951. "We had to do a lot of digging," Makovsky says. "We reached out to ex-Knollies, people who worked at Knoll, and tried to track down textiles. Fortunately there were two employees who were married to one another and we found a cache of great, very rare textiles in their attic. One of them had always wanted to make pillows out of them but never got around to doing it, which was great for us because we used some of those in the exhibition."
