Maija Isola´s Lokki is one of Marimekko´s most iconic fabrics. The idea came to the artist when she was looking at a window with a curtain drawn across it: the broad folds formed wavelike shadows in the sunshine. Isola executed the final sketch by cutting colour paper with scissors, which gave the waves the trademark living lines evident in the printed fabric.

The idea for the Lokki (seagull) pattern came to Maija Isola when she was looking at a window with a curtain drawn across it. The sun was shining, and the wide folds of the curtain formed wavy shadows on the fabric. Maija had a sudden inspiration: if a fabric is printed with waves, even a small piece of such fabric appears abundant, richly folded.To Maripedia
