The major exhibition at the Royal Palace of Stockholm, gives visitors the opportunity to wander through the woven world of Märta Måås-Fjetterström.
When asked to describe her artistry, she said: "Look at the rugs – find me". It was her rugs that spoke expressively about who she was, her sources of inspiration, her life and career, and the conditions experienced by female entrepreneurs during the first half of the twentieth century.
The Royal Family have regularly purchased rugs created by Märta Måås-Fjetterström since her workshop began operations in 1919. This year marks the centenary of when she started her studio, and The King has taken the initiative for an exhibition about and including her work. Rugs from the Royal Collections will go on display for the first time.
Together with external loans, the exhibition will also present around sixty rugs reflecting Märta Måås-Fjetterström's output up until her death in 1941.
We featured Märta Måås-Fjetterström in Issue 92 Comfort.
