Unikko classic pattern was created in 1964, after Marimekko founder Armi Ratia publicly proclaimed a ban on flowers in Marimekko prints. Artist Maija Isola defied the order and designed a whole collection of floral patterns that were so fresh and unique that Armi Ratia ended up taking eight of them. One of those she accepted was Unikko, the future symbol of the brand. 

Here is the Unikko Home continuing collection. Find here the Unikko seasonal collections.

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.
