Maija Isola

Maija Isola’s (1927–2001) remarkable career as a textile designer began at Printex, Marimekko's predecessor, in 1949 and lasted 38 years.

Maija designed more than 500 fabric patterns, which cover an amazingly diverse range of motifs and design techniques. She drew inspiration for her work from traditional folk art and modern visual art alike, from nature and her countless trips around the world. Her designs, such as Unikko (poppy), Kivet (stones), and Kaivo (well), continue to be an essential part of Marimekko’s collections. Maija’s signature style has, for its part, had a significant impact on Marimekko’s iconic design language.
