The Silkkikuikka pattern on this unbleached heavyweight cotton fabric is printed in Helsinki. This fabric was printed with natural indigo, a plant based dye extracted from Finnish woad. It is characteristic that color will naturally soften during washes, use and light. Avoid contact with perfume, hairspray and other chemicals.

Description

"I was dancing with brushes," said Maija Isola, the print designer. In 1961 she spent many evenings and nights working in Marimekko's printing factory - painting in gentle, sweeping brushstrokes to the sway of music. Meter upon meter of new patterns emerged. On one of those nights, Silkkikukka (great crested grebe), a pattern of alluring rhythm and simplicity, saw daylight.
