Marimekko, founded by the revolutionary grand lady of Finnish design Armi Ratia in 1951, is an iconic Finnish design company creating high quality apparel, textiles and home accessories. Today, Marimekko's fabrics and other products decorate countless homes in Finland and abroad.
Since its establishment, Marimekko has relied on the innovative courage of young and talented designers. Contemporary designers such as Maija Loekari, Carina Seth Andersson and Sami Ruotsalainen continue the strong traditions of Maija Isola, the designer of the iconic Unikko pattern, and Annika Rimala, the creator of the Tasaraita pattern. The heart of Marimekko's pattern design is the own textile printing factory located in Helsinki, Finland, where over one million meters of fabric is printed every year. Refining fashion and pattern making since its birth, Marimekko creations have a lively and distinctive look that reflects the lifestyle envisioned by its founder Armi Ratia.
