The Niittyheinikossa sneakers are made of cotton canvas in the Mini Unikko pattern, which is printed in Helsinki. The shoes have 4 cm thick rubber soles and they come with two different coloured sets of laces; one dark red and one light red.
The soles are made of 40% recycled rubber.
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.
