The paper presents an analytical review of the studied and processed information on the fundamental role of the education of artists in the system of the avant-garde institutes and art schools in the first quarter of the twentieth century. The study explores the main theoretical aspects related tothe development and formation of the Russian textile avant-garde. For a deeper and more objective understanding of the development of innovative ideas in the art of post-revolutionary Russia in the 20th century it focused on the activities of the main ideologists of the Russian avant-garde in the art of painting: M. F. Larionov, N. S. Goncharova, K. S. Malevich, and V. V. Kandinsky. In the textile art there were studied the activities of V. F. Stepanova, L. S. Popova, and O. V. Rozanova, as well as other personalities who influenced the formation of avant-garde schools. The authors provide an insight into how the ideas of the avant-garde were kept in the ideas of suprematism, constructivism and propaganda textile.
