Marimekko Pieni Unikko Oven mitt Red
Made from unbleached heavy cotton linen, this pot holder features the Pieni Unikko pattern. The pot holder has a padded filling and a hanging loop. Unikko (Poppy) was born in 1964, at a time when flowers were not yet part of Marimekko's pattern world. Maija Isola wanted to create something new and interesting from this theme and created a whole series of strong floral designs. Dimensions: 21.5 x 21.5 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.
