" If I knew where I was going, I wouldn't be going anywhere." - Armi Ratia
Marimekko's founder Armi Ratia never wanted a flower pattern. Designer Maija Isola didn't quite agree and in her protest, in 1964 the Unikko print was created.
"I really don't sell clothes. I sell a way of living. They are designs, not fashions... I sell an idea rather than dresses"
Armi Ratia, founder of Marimekko 1963
