The idea for the Lokki (seagull) pattern came to Maija Isola when she was looking at a window with a curtain drawn across it. The sun was shining, and the wide folds of the curtain formed wavy shadows on the fabric. Maija had a sudden inspiration: if a fabric is printed with waves, even a small piece of such fabric appears abundant, richly folded.

Maija Isola's (1927-2001) remarkable career as a textile designer began at Printex, Marimekko's predecessor, in 1949 and lasted 38 years. She designed more than 500 fabric patterns, which cover an amazingly diverse range of motifs and design techniques.
She drew inspiration for her work from traditional folk art and modern visual art alike, from nature and her countless trips around the world. Her designs, such as Kivet (stones), Unikko (poppy) and Kaivo (well), continue to be an essential part of Marimekko's collections.
