Timeless design brings joy for generations to come

We are committed to making desirable products and garments that are never just thrown away. Through timeless design and long-lasting quality, our goal is to inspire meaningful relationships that continue through generations.

Designing beyond trends
The Marimekko design philosophy is independent from changing trends. It’s rooted in an optimistic lifestyle and a genuine desire to inspire through timeless and functional design. To earn its place in the world, we believe that any Marimekko product should be created to bring years of joy and value to its owner(s). A long-lasting product is also a more sustainable product.

“Marimekko is not about trendy fashion. We make timeless and lasting products, which, by chance, are often very fashionable.”


— Armi Ratia - 1978, founder of Marimekko

Making things that last
Making things that last
Before the launch of a new Marimekko product, it undergoes rigorous testing to ensure that it meets our demanding quality standards. Some of the things we test for include fabric shrinkages, colorfastness, and abrasion resistance. Additionally, we aim to keep the share of quality claims of sold products below 0.5% – that’s less than 1 in 200.
A lifelong love affair

A lifelong love affair

The most sustainable piece of clothing is the one you already own. And that’s because even the greenest garment still requires resources to produce and transport to a store or to your home. In other words, buying high-quality garments and using them for as long as possible is the simplest yet most impactful way to reduce your environmental footprint.
Take care
When properly cared for, your Marimekko products will last for years. And not only is good care an excellent way to increase the lifespan and sustainability of an item; it also keeps colors vibrant and generally makes for more joyful ownership.
