printing factory in Helsinki is the heart and soul of our pattern design. About
a million metres of fabric are printed there every year: all Marimekko kitchen textiles and fabrics
sold by the metre, for example, as well as part of the fabrics used for
clothing and bags.
Caring for the environment
Taking care of the environment is one of the basic pillars of our operations. The main environmental aspects of our own operations are related to our fabric printing factory in Helsinki. Our aim is to continuously reduce our environmental impacts and improve resource efficiency. Our efforts are focused on energy efficiency, the use of renewable energy sources, minimising water consumption, recycling, and reusing waste. From 2016, we have been using biogas instead of natural gas at our fabric printing factory, which significantly reduces our carbon dioxide emissions.
