Marimekko's story began in the late '40's, but it wasn't until Jackie Kennedy sported a Marimekko dress in the early '60s that the Finnish company found itself facing fame. Founder Armi Ratia had a clear vision for the brand; bold colors, graphic designs and no floral prints. Despite this last rule, Maija Isola designed Unikko in 1964, which would soon become the company's, and arguably the world's most recognized pattern. Countless prints have since joined the powerful poppies, each designed by veteran and emerging top artists. Though still a textile company at heart, today Marimekko's modern designs can be found on a wide range of home décor items.
