Created by Antti Kekki using the paper cutout technique, the Rukinlapa (distaff) pattern was inspired by traditional, ornamental handicraft. In the pattern, one can see a series of distaffs decorated with a vegetal theme. Together, they seem to form a vine climbing up the wall.

The Naatit (tops) print was inspired by harvest time – treats from the vegetable patch have just been carried to the table. Designer Antti Kekki wanted to pair graphic shapes with delicate organic details, using negative spaces to add a sense of depth and create playful forms.

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.
