Marimekko supports Sydney Mardi Gras

To celebrate equal rights, Marimekko supports Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras taking place from 14th February to 1st of March 2020. 

The Tasaraita (even stripe) pattern is Marimekko's symbol of equal rights. As an official Supporting Partner of one of Australia's most visible LGBTQI organizations, we will present a dedicated Tasaraita-themed window installation in our Sydney flagship store from 24th February until 1st March 2020. The Mardi Gras Party VIP area will also be decorated in Marimekko's bold prints and colors to celebrate the occasion.

Equal stripes for equality

Equality and authenticity have been important values for Marimekko since our early days, and we want to promote the discussion around equal rights actively. Tasaraita was born in 1968 when Marimekko designer Annika Rimala wanted to create a collection of cotton jersey clothes suitable for everyone irrespective of age or gender.
