Marimekko's Ahkera bag features two well-known Marimekko prints: the geometric Tasaraita pattern with a large, slightly translucent Marimekko logo. Originally designed by Annika Rimala in 1968 as a go-to piece for jeans, the Tasaraita pattern symbolizes equality, and it has coloured Finnish homes and clothing for already half a century.

Made of durable yet lightweight cotton canvas, the Ahkera tote bag is ideal as a shopping bag, workout bag or bag for short weekend trips. The bag is machine-washable, and the fabric has been printed in Helsinki, Finland.

Annika Rimala

Annika Rimala (1936–2014) was a Finnish designer who is known best for her work for Marimekko. Rimala worked for Marimekko between 1960 and 1982. Personality and humor are combined with durability and practicality in her design work.

Rimala wanted to make timeless and comfortable clothes for alls ages and all sizes. She created the first tricot clothes for Marimekko, the Tasaraita collection, in 1968. Other well-known fabrics Rimala designed for Marimekko are Pallo, Hedelmäkori, Puketti, Petrooli, Tarha and Viiriäinen.

After retiring from Marimekko in 1982 Annika Rimala continued working with her husband Ilkka Rimala and the graphic designer Teemu Lipasti in their own company named Santtu. Since 1969 until 1988 she also worked as a designer for Kaunis Koru. Rimala's work has been exhibited around the world in museums and exhibitions and her work has been recognised with a Pro Finlandia medal in 1997 and the State Design Prize in 1974.
