Anna Greta Sjöqvist was a prolific 20th century Swedish designer and weaver specializing in flatwoven carpets or matta rölakan that often incorporate wide borders and ancient tribal decorations, including stepped polygons, stars, abstract geometric glyphs and stark repeating patterns. 

Flatwoven carpets designed and produced by Anna-Greta Sjöqvist are signed AGS in woven letters and were typically produced between 1950 and 1960. Sjöqvist’s designs represent a combination of geometric patterns, modernist principals and classic colors associated with mid-century Scandinavian designs that maintain a timeless yet contemporary appearance almost a half century later.
