Marimekko is a Finnish design company, renowned for its original prints and colours. By turning home décor into vibrant expressions of joyful living, Marimekko’s anti-fashion attitude spurred one of the world’s first genuine lifestyle brands. As they mix new ideas with historic inspirations from our archive, Marimekko’s designers and visiting artists aren’t creating for a particular nowness. Instead, they seek to capture the spirit of Marimekko that’s still contemporary after all these years and instantly recognizable across generations.
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.
