Made from a soft cotton and linen blend with the chambray technique, this duvet set features the classic Unikko (poppy) pattern in cotton and dark blue colours. The duvet cover has a thread count of 120 and hand openings at the top corners that make changing the covers easier. The pillowcase has a thread count of 120. Unikko (poppy), symbolising creativity, was born in a time when hardly any floral designs were included in Marimekko's collections. Maija Isola, however, was fascinated by the theme of flowers and decided to create an entire range of novel floral prints.
In the 1950s, when the predominant fashion was rather restricting, Marimekko started making liberating dresses in abstract patterns in vibrant colours for women who are bold in expressing their personality through their choice of attire. Marimekko designers had an ability to sense the pulse of the moment- their clothing design was a source of enchantment and provocation around the world.
Over the years Marimekko's anti-fashion became not only fashion but also a way of living. Marimekko is considered one of the first lifestyle brands to combine fashion, handbags and accessories, as well as home decor, into an expression of joyful living.
