Scandinavian Rugs By Textile Designer Ida Rydelius
textile designers Ida Rydelius was a prominent textile artist who designed a number of decorative flat-weave vintage rugs and kilims during the mid-20th century. Virtually nothing is really known about the artist’s life or her professional training, but the classical compositions and formal styles of the Rydelius’ textiles speak for themselves.
The distinctive vintage and mid century kilim rugs and carpets, that were created by textile designer Ida Rydelius, feature a variety of strong geometric motifs, stepped lozenges and precise shapes that are executed in bold colors.
These distinctive artistic textile pieces are unique yet fit in well with other mid century modern Scandinavian kilims that were created in the same genre and period of time. Textiles designed by Rydelius can be recognized by the “IR” insignia.
