During the National Socialism period

During the National Socialist era, Pomeranian folk art was appropriated as a supposedly ancient Nordic tradition. Soon, Nazi celebrities such as Alfred Rosenberg, Hermann Göring and allegedly even Adolf Hitler were among the owners of fishermen's carpets. In addition, "many Reich ministers and high state officials, the largest German shipping lines, museums, Gau managements, air raid wardens, professors and many other persons with an understanding of art" were in possession of fishermen's carpets. Motifs such as the four fish and others in the form of a sun wheel were now part of the basic assortment in demand. Nevertheless, carpet production came to a standstill in the 1940s due to war-related cutbacks and disagreements with Stundl, who had even been imprisoned for some time.
