MARIMEKKO

What, you don't know Marimekko?  Of course you do...you may not know that you know Marimekko...but this Finish design house has been around since the mid 20th century and those poppy's have been everywhere...ever since.
 Marimekko, based in Helsinki, is known for it's bold fabrics and bright designs.  The look of Marimekko was a tremendous influence on fashion in the mid century and most of the patterns are still in production today.


The company was made famous in the U.S. by Jackie Kennedy who wore a rotation of eight Marimekko dresses during the 1960 presidential campaign.


Crate and Barrel has had a long standing relationship with Marimekko, even decorating some of their stores with the designs.


I found several of these designs on the online store...Textile Arts.

















I hope you enjoyed...Marimekko seemed like the perfect candidate to end our week of Pattern.
Please join us next week when we introduce a new muse!
Have a beautiful weekend everyone!
