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.
