Marimekko Tasaraita duvet cover 150 x 210 cm, black - white

The pioneer of stripes

In Finland, the stripes were popularized by Marimekko's designer Annika Rimala, who introduced the iconic Tasaraita collection in 1968. The timeless black-and-white print suits both a minimalist and colorful bedroom, and the high-quality cotton jersey guarantees a good night's sleep.

Artek’s Siena gives a little twist to traditional striped patterns. Designed by Alvar Aalto in 1954, the graphic Siena is inspired by the marble tile walls of the medieval cathedral of Piazza del Duomo.
