In 1947 he set up Angelo Testa & Company, producing hand screen-printed and woven textiles for the many architectural studios of Chicago. Testa developped collaboration in textile design with several companies like Schumachers. Testa approached his textile work as an abstract painter. He was interested in form and line and saw his work as being suited to the new minimal approach towards architecture.
