Unikko Print Apron in Sky Blue
Made from unbleached cotton and features the classic Unikko ‘Poppy’ print by Maija Isola, it has a front pocket and an adjustable neck band. This product was made from fabric 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.
This classic was created in 1964, after Marimekko founder Armi Ratia publicly proclaimed a ban on flowers in Marimekko prints. Artist Maija Isola defied the order and designed a whole collection of floral patterns that were so fresh and unique that Armi ended up taking eight of them. One of those she accepted was Unikko, the future icon of icons. The print has been turned into a charming apron and features a front pocket, three neckband snap settings, and waist ties.
