Marimekko Unikko Jute Placemat
This placemat woven out of jute features the classic poppy flower of the Unikko pattern.
Jute is a durable fibre that requires less water, fertilizers, and pesticides to grow than for example cotton.
Marimekko’s famous poppy pattern Unikko was born in 1964 in a time when the design house’s collections featured mostly abstract prints. Designer Maija Isola wanted to create something interesting from this organic theme and designed an entire range of floral prints. Today, the iconic flower represents creativity.
