Marimekko's Oiva lunchbox is easy to take with you on picnics, to work and on children's school trips. The charming lunchbox is decorated with an embossed Räsymatto pattern drawn by Maija Louekari, telling the story of rural life in an urban environment.

The multi-purpose box can be used not only for carrying snacks but also as a container on its own: the lid of the lunchbox serves as a plate, while the base can be used as a deep bowl.  The off-white box is made of Sulapac, which is a biodegradable and bio-based material, and comes with a band that can be used to secure the lid in place. Note that the band is not a rubber band, even though it looks like one – so do not stretch it too much to avoid the band breaking.

This item is part of the Marimade collection which celebrates everyday life and its peculiar moments. The multifunctional and ecological products are made of upcycled leftover material from Marimekko's production. Please note that each product is unique and patterns and colours might differ from the ones you see in the picture.

Maija Louekari

Finnish print designer Maija Louekari (b. 1982) is well-known especially for the textile prints designed for Marimekko. Louekari has studied at the University of Art and Design Helsinki, and in 2003 she won a design competition organized jointly by her university and Marimekko. She has worked as a freelance designer for Marimekko ever since.

Louekari finds inspiration for her patterns from everyday life and the small things, people and sounds that surround her. Also different environments from urban metropolises to Finnish forests contribute to her work. Most of Louekari’s large, uniform patterns have been hand-drawn, and she also likes to experiment with different techniques such as paper cutting. Among her most important works are the Siirtolapuutarha and Räsymatto patterns, originally designed for Marimekko's Oiva tableware range in 2009.
