The Renat sneakers are made of heavyweight cotton in the Mini Unikko (poppy) pattern. The shoes have a Velcro fastening and a 3 cm thick rubber sole, which has the Marimekko logo on the bottom. The canvas material is printed in Helsinki.
Marimekko’s famous poppy pattern Unikko was born in 1964 in a time when the design house’s collections featured mostly abstract prints. Designer Maija Isola wanted to create something interesting from this organic theme and designed an entire range of floral prints. Today, the iconic flower represents creativity.
