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 water colour 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 studio’s director and, together with artists Marianne Richter and Ann-Mari Forsberg, they continued Måås-Fjetterström’s work. Her tapestries and rugs are represented at Louvre in Paris, Victoria and Albert Museum in London, Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC and Nationalmuseum in Stockholm among many other museums.
