Röllakan rugs are an important part of the Swedish textile tradition. Initially part of the peasant craft dating back to the middle-ages they were given a modern make-over by the Swedish textile designer Märta Måås-Fjetterström in the early years of the Twentieth century.  She went on to inspire and train many designers who produced high quality hard wearing woollen rugs with a typical muted Scandinavian palette and suble modern motifs. They are real works of art as well as functional homeware items and are an essential feature of the Scandinavian look.
