The pattern was inspired by ancient oaks in the garden of the vicarage in Vadstena, where Märta Måås-Fjetterström spent her childhood. It is a magnificent flossa rug with an oriental feel to it. The rug as well as the sketch will be part of the exhibition at the Royal Palace. Photo: Anette Nilsson /Royalpalaces.se. Photo copyright Kungl. Hovstatena.
