This cotton sateen fabric features the Unikko pattern, which is printed in Helsinki.

This product includes 50% organic cotton.

This product celebrates the 60th anniversary of the Unikko pattern and it is printed with the anniversary side signature.

Marimekko fabrics are printed using either a flatbed or rotary printing method. Printing large-print fabrics using the flatbed method leaves a repeat line at the edge of the pattern, and the prominence of this line depends on the fabric's colour and pattern. The repeat line is not a flaw but a feature of the printing technique that can also be used as an effect.

Unikko was created by Maija Isola in 1964 and has since become an international icon of print design. The founder of Marimekko, Armi Ratia, believed that it was not possible to faithfully capture the true essence of real flowers in print, which is why floral prints were earlier excluded from Marimekko collections. So, Maija Isola designed Unikko to be an abstraction of a flower rather than a photorealistic rendition. Today, Unikko is a powerful emblem of joy and creativity, seamlessly integrated into Marimekko´s design identity.
