Made of Panama cotton, this cushion cover features the Pieni Karhuemo motif, printed in Helsinki. The lining has a hidden zipper on one side.
Our cushion covers are sewn using the full width of the fabric so their appearance may vary slightly. Each item is unique.
The Karhuemo (mother bear) motif is based on a plant-themed sketch made by Aino-Maija Metsola for the Ruudut (square) print created in collaboration between four designers for Marimekko’s spring collection for 2021, the year of the 70th company anniversary. Among the flowers and leaves in the original drawing, Aino-Maija has added a bear with her cub. The ground rumbles beneath the galloping mother bear as the baby stands up on its hind legs to look at the land.

It started with a dress. In the 1950s, Marimekko’s trail-blazing founder Armi Ratia created the brand’s very first pieces; a vividly printed range of liberating dresses that reflected her confident spirit. Contrary to the traditional attire of the time, Ratia’s designs embraced looser silhouettes, bold, colourful prints and a free-spirited sensibility made to empower women. This legacy still lives on today, and Marimekko’s eye-catching range of printed pieces now extends to accessories, homewares, ceramics and more. Each piece is expertly printed in the brand’s Helsinki printing factory and the Finnish company’s vibrant motifs are instantly recognisable – give a special friend or loved one a stylish surprise with a playful printed tote bag, chic mug or colourful set of notecards.
