Timeless design brings joy for generations to come

We aim to continue creating new classics – high-quality products that stand the test of time. Our objective is that, during their lifetime, Marimekko items bring joy to many different consumers, even generations,  after which they are finally recycled into new products.

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.  Multipurpose clothes, that can be creatively combined from one collection to another, help to prolong the products lifetime. Our structural system for dresses, skirts and tops presents three different archetype silhouettes, A-line, straight, and fit & flare, that you can obtain in three different volumes.

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

— Armi Ratia, Founder of Marimekko

Making things that last
Making things that last
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).  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 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.
