A pretty new pillow for spring. The imaginative plants in the Kasvio (flora) pattern were created by combining leaves, flowers and stalks of different plants and playing with dimensions. Lotta Maija drew inspiration for the design from old books on plants and a summer cottage garden. The cover includes a concealed zipper for easy removal and laundering. Made in Estonia.
Founded in 1951 by visionary Finnish textile designer Armi Raitia and her husband, Viljo, Marimekko grew from a small textile-printing firm into an international phenomenon. From its beginnings as a textile design company, Marimekko (meaning “Mary’s dress”) branched out into everything from toys to dinnerware to architecture, becoming something of a lifestyle brand in the 1960s and 70s. The company’s outstanding designers revolutionized modern printed fabrics and fashion. Today the company continues to collaborate with young artists, encouraging experimentation. The result is spirited, non-traditional patterns and vivid colors.
