  1. The Living Tradition of Ryijy: Finnish Rugs and Their Makers

    2600 Park Ave
    Minneapolis, MN 55407-1090
    Call: 612-871-4907

    The Living Tradition of Ryijy – Finnish Rugs and their Makers showcases the development of the ryijy rug in Finland over the course of 300 years - from its origin as a utilitarian cloth woven for use as coverlets and bedding into today’s expressive bright and modern designs used as textile art, often involving innovative techniques and experimental fabrics. The Living Tradition of Ryijy comes to ASI from the Savaria Museum in Budapest, Hungary and is culled from the private collection of Dr. Tuomas Sopanen, the largest collector of ryijy in Finland.
