HAPPY ANNIVERSARY MARIMEKKO

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.
