Shaggy Beauties – Rya Rugs

Although the art of rug making has always been associated with the Orient, Scandinavia also has a lot to boast of in the matter. Nowadays, people most frequently associate Swedish rya rugs with the flat-weave Rollakans that have gained the world-wide popularity in the first half of the 20th century thanks to the ingenious creations of iconic weavers, such as Marta Maas-Fjetterstrom or Judith Johansson.
