Marjatta Metsovaara was one of the most productive and creative textile artists of all time and recognized internationally.
She was known for being bold and rich in ideas using new materials. As an experimenter, she created different invented wefts in different colors and material implementations unseen before.
Her father and Arttu Brummer saw a talent in textile design and sent her to the Art and Crafts Academy (now Aalto University) in Helsinki. Erik Bruun, Yki Nummi, Timo Sarpaneva, Nanny Still and Maija Isola were classmates. Tapio Wirkkala and Dora Jung were among her teachers.
