Kristina Isola is a Finnish textile designer who has followed in the footsteps of her mother Maija Isola, one of the most well-known Marimekko’s textile designers. Kristiina Isola, who has studied at the Free Art School in Helsinki and at the department of photography of the Institute of Industrial Arts, made her first sketches for fabrics at the age of sixteen as an assistant to her mother.
