For almost seventy years, Marimekko has empowered people around the world by offering products that bring functional, long-lasting benefits to everyday life. In fact, Marimekko designs are renowned for their timelessness and are often passed on from one generation to the next.
We are committed to extending the product life cycle even further and to reducing our environmental impact throughout every segment of our business, including the design process, supply chain, and logistics choices.
We are continually striving to get better. You can follow our progress on our Instagram and here on marimekko.com.
Our commitments in brief
Marimekko was founded around creative printmaking, and we are committed to keeping this legacy alive through our Helsinki printing factory, where we print about a million meters of fabric per year.
We are not about disposable fashion. We want to create items that truly last in use, from one generation to the next, and thus aim at always choosing materials that last longest in our experience. At the same time, acknowledging the textile industry’s environmental impact, we are on a mission to increase the share of sustainable materials in our products.
We require sustainability not only of our own operations but also of our suppliers by promoting safe and fair labor practices and ensuring respect for the environment and high standards of chemical restrictions.
