The 'Snäckorna', inspired by the sea, with seashell patterns woven into the design. This example most likely handwoven by Hildur Petersson and Anna-Greta Nilsson. Barbro Nilsson became the artistic director of the Märta Måås-Fjetterström after Märta Måås passed away in 1941 and continued the role until 1970. She was a very skilled textile artist and established weaver.
