A large 1930s flat weave carpet with a geometric decoration in the Functionalist style, by Greta Skogster - Lehtinen for Aaltosen Mattokutomo, Kiikka, Finland.

Greta Skogster-Lehtinen (1900 - 1994) was one of Finland's leading textile artists in the 1930s. At the age of 22, she started her own weaving company. She worked on commissions to design textiles for numerous public spaces (like the Parliament House in Helsinki), restaurants, hotels and ships. Her work was often inspired by the Finnish landscape.
