swedish textile designer, swedish carpet

Martha Meuse Fjetterstrom (1873-1941) was a Swedish textile designer whose career was punctuated by three prominent exhibitions in the 1930’s — at Liljevalchs in Sweden, at the British Museum in London and at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Since her death in 1941 her studio has lived on, both through contemporary executions of her hundreds of original designs and with many new pieces conceived by others working under her label. The vintage carpet shown by Marianne Richter is dated to 1969 and is among the company’s vintage offerings. Other interesting links to Fjetterstrom’s bio and designs can by found here and here.
