Applied Art in Finland

Excerpt

This publication presents illustrations of Applied Art in Finland, most of them reproducing objects designed and made during the last ten years.

Of all the creations of Handicraft and Industrial Art in Finland in recent years, those of textile must undoubtedly be placed in the front rank. The most characteristic of them is the hand-knotted "ryijy". Its technique has a long ancestry in the art of the peasantry. The rich colourings and imaginative designs have, to a high degree, inspired the art of modern textiles.
