A big brown hare crouches in a shrub, surrounded by nature’s beautiful palette. Watchful and alert, it is ready to leap. A modern take on a folkloristic theme, the Rusakko (brown hare) print continues Aino-Maija Metsola’s tales from the forest. The pattern original was drawn on paper with a bottle pen marker and paintbrush, and then colored using a computer. Length: 85.00 cm

It started with a dress. In the 1950s, Marimekko’s trail-blazing founder Armi Ratia created the brand’s very first pieces; a vividly printed range of liberating dresses that reflected her confident spirit. Contrary to the traditional attire of the time, Ratia’s designs embraced looser silhouettes, bold, colourful prints and a free-spirited sensibility made to empower women. This legacy still lives on today, and Marimekko’s eye-catching range of printed pieces now extends to accessories, homewares, ceramics and more. Each piece is expertly printed in the brand’s Helsinki printing factory and the Finnish company’s vibrant motifs are instantly recognisable – give a special friend or loved one a stylish surprise with a playful printed tote bag, chic mug or colourful set of notecards.
