The wooden details on our products need constant care in order to stay beautiful and in good condition for as long as possible. As wood dries, it begins to crack, which is why we recommend treating the product with light-colored olive oil whenever it starts to feel dry or when it has started to loose its sheen. Let the oil absorb into the wood overnight and repeat the treatment the next day if the wood looks like it could absorb some more. Wooden products don’t stand soaking. They should be washed quickly by hand and dried thoroughly.
Marimekko’s Oiva dishes are made from vitro porcelain, which is a high-fired and high-class material. Thanks to the high firing temperature, the surface of vitro porcelain is impenetrable to liquids and foodstuff. The dishes are dishwasher, oven, microwave oven and freezer proof. Naturally products which contain wooden or leather details are not suitable for ovens or dishwashers and should be washed by hand. Oiva dishes are not suitable for cooking food with on the kitchen stove. The warm-colored white vitro porcelain works as a perfect background for Marimekko’s colorful prints.
SUKAT MAKKARALLA GLASSES
The Sukat Makkaralla (Socks Rolled down) products are made from body-colored mouth blown glass. The glass is colored with dyes that will not dissolve into food, making them perfectly safe to use. The glass is mouth blown into a mold, which means the products are handmade and may contain occasional air bubbles. Marimekko’s glass products are made for cool drinks – they do not stand boiling liquids. The glasses are dishwasher proof but we do recommend washing the pitcher by hand due to its shape and size. The glasses should not be used as candleholders.
Like the Sukat Makkaralla products, our glass vases are also made of body-colored mouth blown glass. Handmade glass products may contain occasional air bubbles or small streaks on the surface. Glass vases should be washed by hand.
Marimekko’s trays are made from melamine-coated birch veneer. We recommend wiping them clean with a damp cloth or washing by hand. Do not soak.
Marimekko’s cutting boards are made from melamine-coated high-density fiberboard (HDF). Cutting boards may also be used as pot coasters since they can withstand temperatures of up to 170 degrees Celsius. We recommend washing cutting boards by hand.
Our placemats are made from printed cotton, which is then coated with phthalate-free PVC. The surface of the placemats is porous and it can absorb stains. The products should be wiped clean with a damp cloth and a mild detergent can be used when necessary. We recommend removing food and other stains right away. PVC coated placemats should not be soaked or cleaned under running water. The placemats do not withstand machine washing. If the product gets wet, water may seep in between the fabric and the coating, which may cause the colors to bleed. The placemats are meant for indoor use only.
We also have acrylic-coated placemats that can withstand machine washing. Check the label for exact care instructions for each product. Just like the PVC coated placemats, these too can be wiped clean with a damp cloth and mild detergent. We recommend removing food and other stains right away.
Most of our bedlinen are made from cotton but we do also have bedding made of linen and satin from time to time. All of the materials will remain beautiful for longer if they are taken care of according to the care instructions. Please wash the products in the given washing temperature. Bedlinen should not be soaked and they should be removed promptly from the washing machine after the washing cycle has completed. We recommend using detergents meant for colored laundry that don’t contain whiteners or brighteners. Bedlinen should be washed in extra water before using them for the first time in order to wash away any extra dye that may come off.
Most of Marimekko’s terry cloth products have been manufactured by weaving. The surface of woven terry cloth is made up of loops. It is typical of woven terry cloth to form runs or elongated terry cloth loops when a loop gets caught on something sharp or rough, causing the threads to move in the fabric. If this happens, the long loops can be cut short without the fabric coming undone. Terry cloth towels and bathrobes should be washed before using them for the first time.
Terry cloth products will stay in good condition for a long time if they are taken care of according to the care instructions. Terry cloth products should be washed in a full washing machine with similar colors and in the correct washing temperature. We recommend using detergents meant for colored laundry that don’t contain whiteners or optical brighteners. Some cosmetic products may also contain ingredients that could harm colors.
