“I was dancing with brushes,” said Maija Isola. In 1961, she spent many evenings and nights working in Marimekko’s print factory – painting in gentle, sweeping brushstrokes to the sway of music. Meter upon meter of new patterns emerged. On one of those nights, Silkkikuikka (great crested grebe), a pattern of alluring rhythm and simplicity, saw daylight.
The Silkkikuikka pattern on this unbleached heavyweight cotton fabric is printed in Helsinki. This fabric was printed with natural indigo, a plant-based dye extracted from Finnish woad. It is characteristic that color will naturally soften during washes, use and light. Please store this product away from light. Avoid contact with perfume, hairspray and other chemicals.25% of the cotton used in this fabric is recycled cotton.
