Memories of Märta Måås-Fjetterström

To mark the exhibition at the Royal Palace, we have created a series of products inspired by Märta Måås-Fjetterström's characteristic patterns.

Beautiful, practical and enduring pieces for special occasions and everyday use that will inspire joy for many years to come. This was our thinking behind the items, which are available from the Royal Gift Shop.

Måås-Fjetterström's 'Rolls Royce'

In 1923, Måås-Fjetterström designed the magnificent Svarta Trädgårdsmattan (Black Garden rug) flossa rug with its oriental feel, often referred to as her 'Rolls Royce'. The pattern has been recreated on a practical tray table, durable and lightweight trays, and coasters for glasses and mugs.

Svarta Trädgårdsmattan: Tray table including table stand 1250 SEK, tray only, 49cm, 350 SEK. Coasters (four pack) 225 SEK. Tray 53x37,5cm 425 SEK. Card holder 39 SEK.

Be of good cheer

Märta Måås-Fjetterström invariably painted the sketches for her rugs and weavings in watercolour. This treasury of around 700 pattern sketches ensures that her craftsmanship and her cultural output live on.

Var Vid Gott Mod (Be of good cheer) was Märta Måås-Fjetterström’s final sketch, and was on her desk when she died on Easter Sunday in 1941. This was a sketch for the altar hanging in Tjörnarp Church.

A detail from the watercolour sketch has been reproduced on a tray, serviettes and a bus/rail pass holder. The name of the pattern translates as 'Be of good cheer' – worth remembering during your coffee break or the morning rush hour!

Var vid gott mod: Tray 20x27cm 195 SEK. Tray 44x28cm 250 SEK. Serviettes 25x25cm 49 SEK. Card holder 39 SEK.

Schackrutan linen tea towel

The shop also has specially produced tea towels from Båstad Linen in colours used by Märta Måås-Fjetterström for her yarn. The pattern is taken from her Schackrutan watercolour sketch for a rug woven early in the workshop's history, before 1924.

The tea towel is available in yellow, blue, red and green.

Schackrutan: Towel 345 SEK.

The exhibition catalogue – more than just a catalogue

A catalogue has been produced for the exhibition, serving as both a guide and a souvenir. All the rugs and weavings from the exhibition – more than sixty in total – are depicted in the catalogue. A fold-out centre section allows the reader to wander through the exhibition, and the richly illustrated publication also includes a number of fascinating articles linked to the exhibition.

English translations are included in the summary and for the captions in the catalogue.

Exhibition catalogue 80 SEK.

Märta Måås-Fjetterström, the Book

A magnificent new book about the textile artist, who produced almost 700 sketches for rugs and weavings during her lifetime, has been published in connection with the exhibition.

This beautiful picture book also includes five in-depth articles by leading textile art experts, exploring Märta Måås-Fjetterström’s artistic talent. Måås-Fjetterström was highly respected by her contemporaries, and was represented at several world exhibitions and in major collections. The work of this Garbo-like artist is now undergoing a new revival. The book has been written in both Swedish and English.

The book about Märta Måås-Fjetterström 450 SEK.

These products can be purchased at the Royal Gift Shop in the Outer Courtyard of the Royal Palace, and from the pop-up exhibition shop inside the Palace.

Subject to availability.
