Scandinavian Rya Rug

About

Antique Finnish Rya, mid-20th century - This striking Finnish Rya or long pile rug is a Classic example of the type. Originally developed as bedding coverlets, these rugs are luxuriantly soft and comfortable. Their design were traditional graphic and abstract. This example reflects the modernist tradition that developed in Scandinavia after the Second World War, with its abstract asymmetrical network in brown and white on grey, accented with flashes of color. Scandinavia is known for their rya and Rollakan rugs. Named after a town in southwest Sweden, rya Swedish rugs date back to the 16th century. At first the rugs were made in solid colors, featuring black, gray, white and yellow but as time passed geometric shapes and floral designs were introduced. Used by nobility as bedding and a display of social standing, rya Swedish rugs were often displayed as tapestries and exhibited as family heirlooms. Rollakan rugs are distinctive Scandinavian folk weavings that are flat-woven tapestry rugs.
