Unikko

I have always loved this iconic Unikko fabric by Marimekko but only recently researched it as part of my studies. It was designed in 1964 by Maija Isola who then went on to co-design fabrics for Marimekko with her daughter Kristina Isola. Now as Maija has passed on, Kristina, who still works with Marimekko, is responsible for curating the design, choosing new colourways and applications.
