Merry Christmas!

Two “Christmas Tree” design flat-weave rugs (“Granen”) in red and green versions (there were also blue and purple), designed by Marianne Richter in 1949 for AB Märta Måås Fjetterström. Festive, any way you look at them.  And fun to see differences in directions of pattern, sizes, colors!

  1. Sorry to all of you who got this post twice. I realized that the information on the green rug was not the image I first posted, but this other shorter one. That’s the problem with putting up the post without the source information at the same time! I only noticed the problem today when adding that source information. Holiday greetings to all, particularly to those of you kind enough to “Follow” the blog! See you next year.
