Vihkiruusu oven mitt 21.5x21.5 cm
The Vihkiruusu oven mitt 21.5x21.5 cm, from the Finnish brand Marimekko, protects your hands against hot plates and oven moulds so that you can manoeuvre around the kitchen with ease. The glove bears the striking Vihkiruusu pattern, a gorgeous floral design full of flowers and leaves that brings to mind thoughts of a gentle summer and everlasting spring. The Vihkiruusu pattern was originally designed by Maija Isola in 1964, but by this time Marimekko's founder, Armi Ratia, had already announced an all-out ban on floral patterns. Despite this, Maija Isola managed to persuade her with the stylish print; seeing her work, Armi Ratia sought to include eight of Maija’s designs as part of Marimekko's various collections, including the Vihkiruusu pattern.
