Svarta Trädgårdsmattan rug (black garden rug), designed in 1923, is often referred to as Måås-Fjetterström’s 'Rolls Royce'.
Inspired by the tall, ancient oaks in her childhood garden, Måås-Fjetterström has composed a magnificent flossa rug with an oriental feel to it. The oaks still stand to this day at the vicarage in Vadstena.
It has been woven for, among others, the Supreme Court of Sweden and the boardroom of Handelsbanken.
A very large Svarta Trädgårdsmatta was on the loom when she passed away in the spring of 1941. That rug was one of the last to be signed MMF.
