Märta Måås-Fjetterström
Sweden, 1950's

“Dukater” rug. Handwoven wool in blue, rose and brown colours on linen warp. Designed in 1923. Handwoven at Märta Måås-Fjetterström AB, Båstad, Sweden.

Märta Måås-Fjetterström (1873-1941), considered to be Sweden’s greatest textile artist, founded her studio in the southern part of Sweden in 1919, where artisan weavers learned to interpret Måås-Fjetterström’s many watercolour sketches into hand-woven masterpieces of knotted piles and ‘rölakan’ flat weave rugs, wall hangings and tapestries of exceptional quality and craftsmanship.

In 1941 textile artist Barbro Nilsson became the studios director and, together with artists Marianne Richter and Ann-Mari Forsberg, they continued Måås-Fjetterström’s work, which is on exhibition at Louvre, Victoria and Albert Museum, Metropolitan Museum of Art and Nationalmuseum in Stockholm among many others.
