She formed the Artl association – a studio for artwork – in 1908 with a group of young painters. The goal of the organization was to raise the artistic worth of everyday goods. Teinitzer specialized in little objects such as ceramics, toys, jewellery, glass, textiles, and clothes, including accessories. She left the association in 1910 and opened her studio in Prague. She was already primarily involved in home textiles at the time. She designed simple, hand-woven, printed, and embroidered fabrics, as well as batik curtains, cushions, and drapes.


She took part in the World Exhibition of Decorative Arts in Paris in 1925. She received commissions to make tapestries based on the designs of well-known Czech artists. She received the state prize IIÔÇödegrees for contributions to the development of Czech textile art in 1952.
