Did You Know?

This textile was printed by Josef Frank’s Austrian firm Haus & Garten. Later, the Swedish firm Svenskt Tenn reproduced the same pattern under the Swedish name Kullarna, meaning “The Hills.”


Unusual for its color and simplicity of design, Ret Hill was also produced in green. These colors reflect an atmospheric landscape of grass and sky. This version may be the only complete width example to have survived from the period.
