Märta Måås at the Royal Palace

A major exhibition will open at the Royal Palace of Stockholm in autumn, giving visitors the opportunity to wander through the woven world of Märta Måås-Fjetterström.

"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 opens on 13 October

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 of Stockholm between 13 October 2019 and 19 April 2020.

The entry fee to the exhibition is included in the Palace ticket. The Royal Palace is open daily.
