Marimekko 50x70 cm Marimekko Hand Towel
Pattern Designer: Maija Louekari Designer: Marimekko Manufactured in Portugal
Made from soft cotton terry, this hand towel features the white and chestnut coloured Räsymatto (rag rug) pattern. The colour scheme on the reverse of the towel is a mirror image of the right side.
The Räsymatto (rag rug) pattern, inspired by allotment gardening, is linked to topical themes like sustainable living and the joy of working with your hands. Allotments, with their flower and vegetable beds, represent urban nature at its best, and a rag rug on the floor of an allotment cottage tells a colorful story of its own.

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.
