Wall Tapestry #6 Marta Måås Fjetterström
A vintage mid-20th century handwoven textile from Marta Måås Fjetterström's workshop in Båstad, Sweden, designed by Barbro Nilsson.
The tapestry's lively linear scene depicts stylized flowers, leaves or tress. The natural but punchy colors further add to the rhythm in the textile.
The ground of the piece is in a natural linen color, woven into this are hues of red, orange, yellow, purple, white, green and blue.
The wool and linen are in excellent original condition. The naturally dyed fibers are still vibrant in color and retain a sheen from the organic oily fats in the wool.
