Pieni Primavera oven mitt
The Pieni Primavera oven mitt from the Finnish brand Marimekko has been adorned with a lovely pattern of flowers and leaves that emanates happiness and vigour. The mitt is both practical and stylish — not only does it protect your hands from heat, it also stands as a stylish kitchen accessory. When not in use, the glove can be hung on a hook where it will serve as a gorgeous interior detail. “Primavera” is the Finnish word for spring and the pattern symbolizes the earthy splendour of the season, radiating energy and warmth. Maija Isola created the pattern while living in Oran, Algeria with the noble landscape serving as her source of inspiration but combined with a touch of homesickness and melancholy. She longed to return home to Finland where she could once again behold the dawn of a summer sun as it rose above a sea of marigolds.
