Pieni Unikko placemat linen
The Pieni Unikko placemat in linen from the Finnish brand Marimekko stands as a gorgeous underlay on your table. The striking yet versatile Unikko pattern works well with all sorts of table cloths and settings, making it ideal for both everyday use as well as for more festive occasions. The Unikko pattern was originally designed by Maija & Kristina Isola in 1964 after Marimekko's founder, Armi Ratia, announced an all-out ban on floral patterns. Despite this, Maija Isola managed to persuade her otherwise with her stylized depiction of majestic poppy flowers — thus, the Unikko pattern was born. Since that time, the iconic design has become something of a signature pattern for Marimekko, and a well-loved aesthetic by many all over the world.
