Well i thought that i would start to let you know more about Marimekko. Marimekko fabrics are my first love and the first wall art i ever made.

Marimekko is Finnish and finds and nurtures an extraordinary team of designers. Marimekko's fabric collection is a combination of their Continuing Collection, dating back to its inception in the 1950's, and of today's hottest young designers' bold new creations.

Marimekko designs are well known for its intriguing, fascinating combinations, bold colours and black-and-white patterns. Expressing Joy and life.

A picture from the 1960's i did this week is the Brown retro kaivo by Maija Isola...also another well known pattern is the Unniko flower pattern..black and white but now comes in many other colourways.. Heina the tall grasses is also from the 1960's.

its amazing really because alot of the patterns that are popular today have been around since the 1960's.
