Wall Tapestry #8 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 features geometric diamonds and rectangles as well as six stylized tulip flowers. The symmetrical arrangement of the angular shapes are beautifully contrasted by the warm and whimsical colors used.
The ground of the piece is in a natural linen color, woven into this are hues of white, green, blue, red, yellow, brown and black.
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.
