A silhouette in stoneware of Maija Isola's iconic Unikko poppy. Over decades and countless color combinations, Unikko remains Marimekko’s most enduring pattern. Hand-washing recommended due to its unique shape.
This collectible celebrates the 60th anniversary of the Unikko pattern and it features the debossed Marimekko logo on the bottom.
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.
