Earlier this summer, I had a rare opportunity to visit the world headquarters of Marimekko, the iconic Finnish textiles, fashion, and homewares company, outside of Helsinki.
Are you a fan of the brand?
While Marimekko may not be a household name here in the United States (yet), I'm sure if I showed you some of the label's iconic prints—like its "Unikko" giant poppies (more on those later)—you'd totally recognize them.
Check out these behind-the-scenes photos of my factory tour at Marimekko world HQ. By the time I left, I was ready to gird my loins and swathe my entire apartment in wild Finnish prints.
