Rug by Anna-Greta Sjöqvist,
Sweden, 1950s.

Knotted handwoven wool.

Signed.

Relief pile technique.

The relief pile technique used to achieve the feel and pattern of this elegant midcentury rug was typical for Swedish textile design at the time. The repeating geometric motif resembles the Greek “meander” – a band consisting of short horizontal and vertical lines forming a labyrinth-like structure. The rug is very soft and extremely enjoyable to walk on.

Little is known about Anna-Greta Sjöqvist (1908–1993). Considering the large variety of her beautiful compositions, however, it is undeniable that she was one of Sweden’s greatest textile designers. She frequently incorporated different patterns and colour combinations to achieve her distinct design aesthetic.
