  • Regular price $49.00


This cotton apron features the classic Pieni Unikko pattern. It has one front pocket, an adjustable neck strap and bands at the waist that can be tied together at the back.

Unikko (poppy) was born in 1964 after Armi Ratia, Marimekko's founder, had announced that Marimekko would never print a flower pattern. Maija Isola refused to obey Armi's orders and - in protest - created an entire series of gorgeous floral prints. One of them was Unikko which has become a story of creativity, strength, courage and faith in oneself. The Unikko pattern is in the Cooper Hewitt Permanent Collection.

In the 1950s, when the predominant fashion was rather restricting, Marimekko started making liberating dresses in abstract patterns in vibrant colors for women who are bold in expressing their personality through their choice of attire. Marimekko designers had an ability to sense the pulse of the moment – their clothing design was a source of enchantment and provocation around the world. Marimekko is committed to sourcing their materials responsibly and sustainably.
