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, now in delightful, infatuating new shades.
Unikko is made of 100% heavyweight cotton.

About Marimekko fabrics
Marimekko fabrics are 145 to 150 cm wide. The length of pattern repeat is mentioned in the specifications of the fabric. Repeats are within +/– 3% of what is specified.
The tone of our fabrics may vary between different printing batches. There may be slight differences in the colour tone of the picture on the product page and the actual fabric.
Marimekko fabrics are printed using either a flatbed or rotary printing method. Printing large-print fabrics using the flatbed method leaves a repeat line at the edge of the pattern, and the prominence of this line depends on the fabric’s colour and pattern. The repeat line is not a flaw but a feature of the printing technique that can also be used as an effect.
The majority of fabrics printed at the Marimekko printing facility in Herttoniemi are certified according to the STANDARD 100 by OEKOTEX®. The certificate guarantees that the fabrics are free of harmful chemicals. Our coated cottons have earlier been coated with phthalate-free PVC and since 2019 this has been replaced by acrylic coating.
How much fabric do you need?
It is a good idea to plan your sewing carefully prior to ordering a fabric to make sure that you purchase the correct amount. When calculating the amount of fabric needed, be sure to take into account the excess required for hems and aligning the print.
For aligning the pattern, use the repeat measurement (found in the specifications) as a guide. Please also take potential shrinking into account when planning your sewing (cotton, sateen, and batiste: 4%; linen: 6%).
