Description

Marimekko's Pienet Elokuun Varjot coated placemat is illustrated with Maija Louekari’s flourishing pattern from 2020, in shades of green and beige. Drawing inspiration from Louekari’s own yard, the Elokuun varjot design depicts a lush garden, slightly overgrown during the summer months. Wild, free, and awash with sweet August scents, the shaded garden offers a place to escape the heat and enjoy the warm winds.

Perfect for both casual and festive table settings, the placemat is made of heavyweight cotton and finished with an acrylic coating, making it easy to wipe clean.

Maija Louekari

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.
