printing factory in Helsinki is the heart and soul of our pattern design. About
a million yards of fabric are printed there every year: all Marimekko kitchen textiles and fabrics
sold by the yard, for example, as well as part of the fabrics used for
clothing and bags.
Caring for the environment
Taking care of the environment is one of the
basic pillars of our operations. The main environmental aspects of our own
operations are related to our fabric printing factory in Helsinki. Our aim is
to continuously reduce our environmental impacts and improve resource
efficiency. Our efforts are focused on energy efficiency, the use of renewable
energy sources, minimising water consumption, recycling, and reusing waste. From
2016, we have been using biogas instead of natural gas at our fabric printing
factory, which significantly reduces our carbon dioxide emissions.
