"Look at the rugs – find me"
Märta Måås-Fjetterström

When asked to describe her artistry, she said: "Look at the rugs –­ find me". It was her rugs that spoke expressively about who she was, her sources of inspiration, her life and career, and the conditions experienced by female entrepreneurs during the first half of the twentieth century.

The exhibition

The Royal Family have regularly purchased rugs created by Märta Måås-Fjetterström since her workshop began operations in 1919. This year marks the centenary of when she started her studio, and The King has taken the initiative for an exhibition about and including her work. Rugs from the Royal Collections will go on display for the first time. 

Together with external loans, the exhibition will also present around sixty rugs reflecting Märta Måås-Fjetterström's output up until her death in 1941.

The exhibition will be held in the Hall of State at the Royal Palace between 13 October 2019 and 19 April 2020.

Over the years, the Royal Family have shown their appreciation and support for Swedish craftsmanship. The work of Märta Måås-Fjetterström is one example of this. She received the Litteris et Artibus medal as early as 1924.

The exhibition is being staged in cooperation between the Royal Court and the Fundraising Foundation for the Preservation of Knowledge of Märta Måås-Fjetterström’s Rugs and Weaving.
