Hearts, diamonds, and tulips. Folk ryijy rugs from the 18th and 19th centuries 12.6.–19.9.2021

07.06.2021
The exhibition Hearts, diamonds, and tulips fills the Art Hall of the Museum of Central Finland with magnificent ryijy rugs starting from mid-June. In Finland, ryijy rugs have been significant utility textiles and their uses have adapted to meet the needs of different times: from a boat and sleeping cover to a bedcover, wedding ryijy, sleigh cover and, finally, a wall decoration. If Finland had a national textile, it would undoubtedly be the ryijy rug.

The exhibition showcases Finnish folk ryijy rugs from the 18th and 19th centuries and the changes within different types of ryijy rugs.
