The Marimekko Vihannesmaa tea towel adds a bit of cheer to your kitchen decor. The towel’s colourful pattern by Maija Louekari depicts various gifts from Mother Earth: flowers, watermelons and peppers, among others. With a name that roughly translates to “vegetable patch”, the pattern represents the joy that only self-grown fruits and vegetables can bring – the crop from your own garden always tastes the best.

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.View all products
