Tapestry #4 Barbro Nilsson, Marta Måås Fjetterström

£2,000

Description

A vintage mid-20th century hand woven textile from Marta Måås Fjetterström's workshop in Båstad, Sweden, designed by Barbro Nilsson.

The tapestry features geometric diamond and chevron shapes throughout. At first sight these appear to be arranged symmetrically but slight quirks become apparent on closer inspection. The colour organisation adds further interest and whimsy to the textiles design.

The ground of the piece is in a natural linen colour, woven into this are colours of white, green, blue, red and dark-burgundy-brown.

The wool and linen are in excellent original condition. The naturally dyed fibres are still vibrant in colour and retain a sheen from the organic oily fats in the wool.

Measurements refer to the framed piece.
