Vuokko Eskolin-Nurmesniemi

Vuokko Eskolin-Nurmesniemi (b. 1930) is a Finnish textile designer. Originally trained as a ceramist, she studied at the Institute of Industrial Arts in the ceramics department in Helsinki from 1948 to 1952 and worked for Arabia from 1952 to 1953. In 1953, Vuokko Eskolin-Nurmesniemi joined Marimekko to design clothing and printed fabrics for clothing and interior decoration.

In the same year she married the famous Finnish designer Antti Nurmesniemi. Vuokko Eskolin-Nurmesniemi had a major impact on the formation of Marimekko’s original line of fashions and the development of its industrial production. The fabrics she created were something completely new and avant-garde in the 1950s in Finland. In 1953, she designed the striped Piccolo fabric, and from it the Jokapoika shirt in 1956 – the Jokapoika shirt is Marimekko’s oldest classic item in continuous production. Another beautiful print from Vuokko Eskolin-Nurmesniemi is Pirput parput, very popular and decorating a variety of objects. Vuokko Eskolin-Nurmesniemi worked at Marimekko until 1960.
