Marimekko’s Unikko fabric features Maija Isola’s iconic floral pattern in rich shades of dark red, light grey and off-white. The thick, luxuriously smooth cotton sateen fabric has been printed in Helsinki, Finland.
The Unikko pattern came about in 1964 after Armi Ratia, the founder of Marimekko, had announced in public that no floral fabrics are designed at Marimekko. Maija Isola did not accept rules or restrictions and designed in protest a complete collection of bold floral patterns: Unikko, a Finnish word that means poppy. Today, Unikko is one of Marimekko's best-known patterns and recognized around the world.
