Pieni Unikko Placemat

  • Sale
  • Regular price $26.00


Made from acrylic-coated cotton, this placemat has the red and dark red Pieni Unikko pattern and a stain repellent acrylic finish on the reverse side of the fabric. Thanks to the protective finish, it is easy to wipe clean with a damp cloth.

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.
