Vintage Swedish Rya Rug by Märta Måås-Fjetterström BB6458 2'10" × 5'5" $4,000
Ryas are the oldest and the most iconic examples of Scandinavian rug art whose origins trace back to the middle ages where they served weary sailors as the protection against piercing cold and gusty winds. This exceptional vintage Swedish rya vintage carpet was created by the Grand Dame of the northern craft, Marta Maas-Fjetterstrom, and is distinguished by exceptional quality going hand in hand with remarkable beauty. Its soft and shaggy pile was masterfully hand-knotted of the finest wool according to centuries-old techniques to become pure pleasure for the senses.
Due to such thorough making, the Swedish antique rug has survived until this day and will surely serve its future owners for many years to come without any signs of wear. As befits a genuine Scandinavian creation, the rya bears an uncomplicated design of pronounced diamonds in toned shades of dark gray, dusty yellow and carmine against the off-white background which enchants with never-passing elegance. The minimalistic composition is finished with a carmine frame separating the main field from the borders in an unobvious way. In every inch of this astounding rya one may spot a gentle touch of the master designer, Marta Maas-Fjetterstrom. This timeless piece will easily fit into any kind of décor, from classic to modern.
