Marimekko’s Pyykki fabric is perfected with Jenni Tuominen's lighthearted pattern. Combining a paper collage technique and hand-painted brushstrokes, the pattern draws its inspiration from laundry (pyykki in Finnish) hung outside to dry, swaying softly in the summer breeze. 

The Pyykki fabric, made of cotton and linen, is printed in Helsinki, Finland. Please note that in a cotton-linen fabric, the print dye is absorbed in the fabric differently than in a 100% cotton fabric – the surface, therefore, feels a little harder.

Our tips for buying fabrics:
