Additional information

Marjatta Metsovaara designed Rusko in 1957, and was shown at the first solo exhibition of Metsovaara organized by Artek the same year. Rusko means brown horse in Finnish but is also a community place in Finland. During the 1950s and 1960s, throws in the same material were offered in the finest department stores in the US.

Today, Metsovaara seeks to produce this fine fabric on slow-speed power looms with a distinctly hand-crafted appeal. This beautiful mohair and wool throw with fringes at the ends is sure to keep you warm this winter. At newly built state-of-the-art combing and spinning facilities, these natural fibers are transformed into unique variations of yarns. Woven in the original Rusko pattern, the fabric is brushed to create a classic, fluffy form. All this means that a throw from Metsovaara not only adorns any room but also provides high comfort and a genuine sense of craftsmanship and heritage. With today’s improved production methods, the throw is more reliable and resistant to washing.
