At Marimekko, strong female figures have always been at the core of the company and have consistently empowered others. Marimekko's founder, Armi Ratia was an extraordinary entrepreneur and trailblazer in the early 1950s.
In our creative community, whether working in design, at the printing mill or in management, gender has never played a role - all paths have been open for everyone.
We are proud of all of the women that work at Marimekko from around the world. This week, we've asked them about the most valuable lessons they've learned.
These Marimekko women are wearing pieces from our Spring/Summer 2020 collection.
Follow us on our Instagram Stories this week to meet more of the inspiring women of Marimekko. We encourage you to share your proudest moments on Instagram and together we will unite our community with our stories.
Marimekko and Plan
In celebration of International Women's Week, Marimekko and Plan International are helping 400 young women in Ethiopia and Uganda to achieve their professional dreams by supporting them in developing their IT skills. They will be taught how to use the internet and office software, programming and image processing. These skills will enhance their ability to gather information and to find employment.
