heavyweight cotton fabric

The idea for the Lokki (seagull) pattern came to Maija Isola when she was looking at a window with a curtain drawn across it. The sun was shining, and the wide folds of the curtain formed wavy shadows on the fabric. Maija had a sudden inspiration: if a fabric is printed with waves, even a small piece of such fabric appears abundant, richly folded.
This heavyweight printed cotton fabric carries the white and yellow waves of the Lokki pattern, which drew its inspiration from the play of shadows and sunlight on the wavy surface of a curtain. Designed by Maija Isola in 1961.
Printed in Helsinki.
