Unikko 50 years

In 2014, Marimekko´s most iconic print turned 50.

Maija isola’s classic Unikko (Poppy) pattern was born in 1964 shortly after the company’s founder Armi Ratia had announced that Marimekko would never print a floral pattern. Maija refused to obey Armi’s orders and, in protest, designed an entire collection of floral patterns.

One of them was Unikko.
