Marimekko Classics: Unikko

Pattern designed by Maija Isola, 1964

The story of Marimekko's most iconic print Unikko (poppy) began in 1964, shortly after Marimekko's founder Armi Ratia had announced that Marimekko would never print a floral pattern. Flowers should only bloom in nature, she said. Maija Isola refused to obey Armi's orders and, in protest, created an entire collection of floral patterns. One of them was Unikko, which has become a story of creativity, strength, courage and faith in oneself.
Today, the Unikko print is an essential part of Marimekko's classics collection and available in various items: printed fabrics, tableware, cups, mugs, women's clothing, shirts, dresses, skirts, silk shirts, bedlinen, cushion covers and canvas bags.
