Marimekko clothes could be defined by a joyful sense of patterns, graphics and colors, highlighted
by the simplicity and elegance of the cuts, where the confort is always an important element
in the eye of the designers.
The essence of Marimekko – the dress for every woman in Finnish – is the confortable yet elegant cotton dress, with pockets, for the every day wear.
"I don't really sell clothes, I sell a way of living. They are designs, not fashions. I sell an idea rather than dresses."
Armi Ratia, founder of Marimekko, 1963
