LARGE SWEDISH FLATWEAVE INSPIRED BY A “KARNFRUKT” TAPESTRY BY BARBRO NILLSON N11805 13'9" × 17'1" $26,000
The Karnfrukt tapestry was one of Barbro Nilsson’s first designs as artistic director for Marta Maas-Fjetterstrom and it can now be found in several museum collections, including the Swedish National Museum.
The present flatweave wool rug is woven in a fine tapestry weave. The all over design features stylized stone fruit in neutral shades of ivory, beige, taupe, yellow, brown, and onlive green.
Doris Leslie Blau carries an exceptional collection of modern rugs inspired by mid-century Swedish designs. We stay true to the legendary tradition of Scandinavian craftsmanship by hand-weaving flatweave wool Rölakan rugs and wool pile Rya rugs that are very close in looks and feel to the original ones. Contemporary hand-made rugs are a bridge throughout history, they are the fruit of the constant evolution of the weaving craft that has accompanied men since the dawn of civilization.
