Märta Måås-Fjetterström’s weavings

few pictures from the exhibition of her work from 1919 to 1941 in Helsinborg (Sofiero castle and park)

I am very glad I’ve got to see these textiles with my own eyes, there  all the structures and shifts in colors which are difficult to see even on best photographs. Most of her  weavings are very drapey and light,  not at all solid rugs as I imagined them to be from the pictures i saw before. Her sense of color and pattern – is something to strive for.

some more pictures here.

MMF AB studio in Båstad, founded by her.

    amazing work – her use of colour is unique, bold and at the same time soft and muted. are they wool on linen?
