Elokuun Varjot Home Collection

pattern design Maija Louekari, 2020 

Maija Louekari drew inspiration for the 2020 Elokuun varjot (August shadows) print from her own wildish home garden. The designer is fascinated by the changing seasons of the North – the new beginnings and the abundant growth that follows, year after year. This pattern design is an ode to greenery, freedom and warm winds.
