Märta Måås-Fjetterström

For nearly a century the Märta Måås-Fjetterström workshop has been producing carpets, textiles and weavings of the highest quality and craftsmanship. The company was formed in 1919 by Märta Måås-Fjetterström, an innovative and influential artist who revived declining weaving techniques and introduced the exploration of texture in her carpet designs; during her lifetime, Måås-Fjetterström created more the 700 original patterns blending folk and traditional handicrafts with Art Nouveau and Art Deco styles.

When Måås-Fjetterström passed away in 1941, the renowned textile artist Barbro Nilsson became the workshop’s director. Nilsson, along with Ann-Mari Forsberg, Marianne Richter, Kaisa Melanton and other designers, continued in Märta Måås-Fjetterström’s footsteps creating innovative and colorful hand-woven masterpieces.
