The Kaivo blanket by Marimekko has a wave pattern in the 60s style and was designed by Maija Isola in 1964. The story of how Kaivo came about is as magical as it is simple: when Maija Isola lowered her bucket into a fountain one day, she was impressed by the elegance of the waves on the water – and the idea for Kaivo was born.
The blanket is made, among other things, from recycled wool and cotton with fringes at the ends. With a size of 140 x 180 cm, it can be used as a throw on the bed or a cozy blanket on the sofa.
Material: 35% wool, 35% cotton, 25% polyamide, 5% other fibers
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.
