The Unikko pattern (poppy) was designed in 1964, just after the founder of the brand Armi Ratia publicly proclaimed that she was banning floral patterns - which she considered outdated - from her collections. 

Fueled by an artist's spirit of contradiction, Maija Isola challenged her by designing a series of floral patterns that were so innovative and fresh that she managed to change Armi Ratia's mind. 

One of these designs was Unikko, which ironically became Marimekko's most iconic design.

Maija Isola

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.
