Description

Marimekko's Karhuemo fabric features an animal motif in which a mother bear is running through the forest with her cub. The cotton-linen fabric is printed at Marimekko’s own print factory in Helsinki, Finland.

The Karhuemo pattern, Finnish for "mother bear", was conceived when Aino-Maija Metsola was designing her own contribution to the Ruudut pattern, created in the spring of 2021 as a collaboration between four Finnish designers. The Ruudut pattern consisted of plant-themed squares made using the paper-cutting technique – during the sketching process, Metsola came up with the idea of ​​adding a bear with its cub to one of the squares.
