Description

Mini Unikko purse by Maija Isola for Marimekko.

The Mini Unikko range is a range of small purses that are perfect for storing money, cosmetics, and other personal items. Made of cotton with a twill interior, the design features a bold floral pattern in softly contrasting colours. A metal ball clasp fastens the purse.

Unikko is one of Marimekko's most popular patterns, but it was born out of rebellion: Marimekko founder Armi Ratia was strongly opposed to floral patterns, insisting that no representation could do them justice. In protest at such prohibitions, designer Maija Isola created the poppy-inspired Unniko design in 1964 ('Unikko' is the Finnish word for poppy) and Ratia immediately conceded the point. Unikko went on to become a mainstay of Marimekko collections from this point onwards.

Marimekko make these purses out of the fabric left over from cutting larger items such as dresses, ensuring that as little material as possible is wasted.

Available in olive/black/white colour scheme. Fabric is 100% cotton and may be machine washed with like colours at 40 degrees.

A Mini Unikko glasses case and a larger size purses are available in an alternative colourway.

Mini purse: 8w x 8cmh
