Käpykukka & Jäärouva

pattern design: Carina Seth-Andersson, 2019

Aino-Maija Metsola, 2019

The bold Käpykukka (pinecone flower) print combines natureinspired simplicity with carefully thought-out details – both signature features of Carina Seth Andersson’s pattern design.

Jäärouva (The Lady of the Cold) is part of a winter floral series by Aino-Maija Metsola. The designer was inspired by the idea of a simple color palette, and the pattern’s sturdy shapes are balanced with the flowers’ large centers. The name of the design originates from Tove Jansson’s book Moominland Midwinter.
