Marimekko's Vihkiruusu plate features a beautiful rose pattern. The ceramic plate is part of Sami Ruotsalainen’s clean-lined Oiva tableware collection that suits both casual and festive settings.
Vihkiruusu, which translates roughly to ”wedding rose”, is one of Marimekko’s classic patterns designed by Maija Isola in 1964. Marimekko’s founder Armi Ratia had declared that no floral patterns would ever be printed at Marimekko. As a protest, Maija Isola designed a series of floral prints so distinctive, Ratia had to immediately take back her words and include eight of them in Marimekko’s collection. Among these eight prints were the romantic Vihkiruusu pattern as well as the iconic Unikko.
