2014 is the 50th anniversary of Marimekko’s most iconic print, Unikko. The print was born in 1964 when Maija Ratia made it in protest of Marimekko’s founder, Armi Ratia, enforcing a florals ban, and thank god for that because just look at it! Unikko is the embodiment of the term ‘flower power’ – it’s bold, bright and strong.
AlwaysMod is a go to for ‘everything Marimekko’, and display these lovely homewares and more on their handy e-store. Although red poppies on white are clearly the best, I thought I’d share a few other colour combos to demonstrate how wide the range is.
