Ritva Puotila

Designer

Ritva Puotila (1937) is world famous for her paper yarn rugs, but has through the years worked with many different techniques and materials. She has designed unique art, but is primarily known for her exclusive, yet simple rugs in paper yarn for Woodnotes in Finland. Inspired by Finnish nature in terms of colour scheme and patterns, the rugs and her other paper yarn products go equally well in the home as in public buildings. Ritva Puotila was named textile artist of the year in 2001.
