Made of acrylic coated cotton, this placemat has the classic Pieni Unikko pattern and a stain resistant acrylic finish on top of the fabric. Thanks to the protective finish, it is easy to clean with a damp cloth.
Unikko (poppy), symbolizing creativity, was born in a time when almost no floral design was included in the Marimekko collections. The designer Maija Isola, on the other hand, was fascinated by the flower theme and decided to create a whole range of products with the Unikko theme.

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.
