About Marimekko Designers
Maija Isola
Majia Isola’s (19272001) career as a print designer for Marimekko began in 1949 and lasted 38 years. During that time, she designed more than 500 patterns for Marimekko. Maija Isola laid the foundation for Marimekko as a print house. She lived an unconventional life for her time, painting what she encountered when traveling across Europe, North Africa, and America. On these trips, many of her patterns and colors were born.
Pentti Rinta
Pentti Rinta worked at Marimekko between 1969 and 1987 as a fashion designer. During his time with the company, he also designed bold and colorful prints for Marimekko. In the 1970s, Pentti’s Marimekko designs appeared on the pages of esteemed international fashion magazines around the world. In 1972, he designed Kuski (driver), a popular corduroy men’s suit that became an instant classic. Some of Pentti’s most recognizable prints for Marimekko include Kirjo (spectrum) and Haamuruutu (phantom square).
Print Stories

Kivet (stones)
Maija Isola’s Kivet (stones) design builds on circles cut with scissors. The pattern was most likely inspired by the big rough-edged stones that were manually cleared from the designer’s atelier home’s grounds. It has since become one of Marimekko’s most recognizable and loved patterns.
Kissapöllö (tawny owl)
In 1961, Maija Isola spent many evenings and nights working in Marimekko’s textile printing factory painting in gentle, sweeping brushstrokes while listening to music. Meter upon meter of new designs emerged, among them Kissapöllö (tawny owl), a pattern of stylized natural forms.
Seireeni (siren)
While traveling in Greece in the early 1960s, Maija Isola got inspired by the movement of water and depicted it in several fabric prints, including Seireeni (siren) from 1964. Named after the mythological sirens, the pattern also recalls the enchanting singing that lured sailors into dangerous waters.

Hattara (wisp) The charming small clouds in Pentti Rinta’s naivistic Hattara (wisp) pattern put a smile on your face and offer a throwback to the sweetest summer memories.
