Made from a rustic blend of unbleached cotton and linen, this cushion cover features the dark blue Unikko (poppy) pattern. The cover has a concealed zipper on one side.
Unikko (poppy), symbolizing creativity, was born in a time when hardly any floral designs were included in Marimekko’s collections. Maija Isola, however, was fascinated by the theme of flowers and decided to create an entire range of novel floral prints.
Marimekko is a Finnish design house celebrated worldwide for its original prints and colours. Founded in 1951 by a visionary woman Armi Ratia, Marimekko is said to be one of the world's first real lifestyle brands combining fashion, bags and accessories as well as home decoration into one unique point of view.
Maija Isola (1927–2001) is probably Marimekko’s most famous designer who created the Kaivo design. The Finnish artist designed her first printed textiles in 1949 for Printex Oy, Marimekko’s predecessor and continued to work as head designer of Marimekko’s interior fabrics until 1987.
