Marimekko Seireeni Jute Placemat
This oval-shaped placemat is woven out of jute, and it features the Seireeni pattern.
While traveling in Greece in the early 1960s, Maija Isola got inspired by the movement of water and depicted it in several fabric prints, including Seireeni (siren) from 1964. Named after the mythological sirens, the pattern also recalls the enchanting singing that lured sailors into dangerous waters.
