The Silmälasi Kukkaro purse is made of unbleached cotton in the Mini Unikko pattern, which is printed in Helsinki. The slim rectangular purse has a metallic frame that is easy to snap open and shut.
This fabric was printed with natural indigo, a plant-based dye extracted from Finnish woad. The colour may fade a little during the first few washes and use.
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.
