History of Marimekko
According to the shop information, MARIMEKKO is a “Finnish Lifestyle Design House celebrated worldwide for it’s original prints and vibrant colours”.
The Marimekko dress was introduced in the 1950’s, giving Finnish women a chance to dress boldly and bravely in a bland world, and truly embrace the joy of life and share it outwardly in fashion, lifestyle and homewares.
The Marimekko meaning
Fun Fact: The Marimekko meaning in Finnish actually translates to “Mari’s dress”.
The most famous Marimekko pattern is arguably the Marimekko flower print known as Unikko, created in 1964 by Maija Isola.
This Marimekko poppy fabric and pattern is but one of the Marimekko design house’ 3,500 designs which now adorn clothing, bags, accessories, kitchenware, bedding, fabric, and socks.
Marimekko has its’ own printing factory in Helsinki, and this is the workhorse of the brand, where the large scale patterns and colours come to life.
Take a look at some of what’s on offer these days!
My favourite part of the Marimekko store in Rovaniemi is the home section.

- Marimekko mugs

These pastel pink mugs and bowls caught my eye.

Including the famous Marimekko Unikko mug and plates.
You can also Marimekko oven gloves, Marimekko cloth napkins, and Marimekko aprons, and Marimekko tea towels.
