Marie Gudme Leth (1895-1997) was a pioneer in the field of textile printing. Inspired by the desire to raise its status to the level of other artisan crafts, Leth achieved vast success.

Advancing from flora and fauna patterns in the 1930s, she honed her technique to set new standards that still heavily influence designers today.

Designmuseum Danmark is celebrating her innovative talent with a number of works that will immerse visitors in her colourful universe. (AP)
