Brita Grahn


The Swedish textile artist Brita Grahn (1907-2003) is known for her lively and abstract patterned rugs. Early in her career, Grahn studied at Amalia Fjaestad's tapestry weaving school. Amalia was sister to the painter Gustaf Fjaestad, known for exploring Swedish National Romanticism. Together with Anna Fjaestad (also sister to Gustaf Fjaestad), Grahn found the 'Arvika Crafts Association', with its own shop selling the wares of the Rackstad group of artists. Later in her career, she became the artistic director of one of Sweden's major interior design firms, Robert Ditzinger.
