Well, we have long been fans of Finnish surface pattern designers at Marimekko – Their designs are recognisable worldwide for their original prints and colours. Marimekko was founded in 1951 by a visionary woman Armi Ratia. Marimekko is said to be one of the world’s first real lifestyle brands combining fashion, bags and accessories as well as home decoration into one unique point of view.

Over the years, their timeless, distinctive and functional designs, bring joy to everyday lives through bold prints and colours – and inspired creativity and crafts!

So, if like us, you look out of your kitchen window at your garden, and think, ‘why didn’t I plant more colour last year?’ it’s not too late!
