If you are interested, there is a Marimekko Exhibition at the Toronto Textile Museum of Canada until April 21. If you miss it you can find tons of items at Crate & Barrel and EQ3 as a start and many other places. Marimekko began in the 50’s and planned to focus on their fabrics but the fashions they created to highlight the fabrics were in demand. It was in the 60’s that the over sized poppy print. Over time, many more colours and patterns were introduced as. Today we see this design in fashion as well as home décor items and tableware.
Below are just few of the great options available and for those who are not quite into florals or too much colour, there are subtle patterns and not so bold colour to be found. The range of products covers almost anything you can imagine. Enjoy!
