Marimekko's coated Vihkiruusu placemat features a beautiful rose pattern. Colourful placemats are an easy way to add a unique touch to the table setting as well as to protect the table surface. Due to the acrylic coating, they are also easy to wipe clean using a damp cloth.
Vihkiruusu, which translates roughly to ”wedding rose”, is one of Marimekko’s classic patterns designed by Maija Isola in 1964. Marimekko’s founder Armi Ratia had declared that no floral patterns would ever be printed at Marimekko. As a protest, Maija Isola designed a series of floral prints so distinctive, Ratia had to immediately take back her words and include eight of them in Marimekko’s collection. Among these eight prints were the romantic Vihkiruusu pattern as well as the iconic Unikko.
