In 2014, Marimekko’s most iconic print turned 50, and we were celebrating around the globe.

See what was happening via our event shots and videos – and join in with your own Unikko moments tagged #Unikko50.


The Unikko story began in 1964, shortly after the company’s founder Armi Ratia had announced that Marimekko would never print a floral pattern. Flowers should only bloom in nature, she said. Designer Maija Isola refused to obey Armi’s orders and, in protest, created an entire collection of floral patterns. One of them was Unikko.

Inspired by the story of Unikko’s inception, we’ve collected similar stories of courage, as well as Unikko-related memories.
