MARIMEKKO PRINT STORIES: UNIKKO
Print stories: Unikko by Maja Isola (1964)
 


Unikko (poppy) was born in 1964 after Armi Ratia, Marimekko's founder, had announced that Marimekko would never print a flower pattern. Maija Isola refused to obey Armi's orders and - in protest – created an entire series of gorgeous floral prints. One of them was Unikko which has become a story of creativity, strength, courage and faith in oneself.
