We choose color, shapes, and patterns to compliment everything in our lives, from clothing to wall prints, to our stationery. I love bright and cheerful paper products, they lighten the day and inspire creativity. I was recently introduced to the world of Marimekko.
Marimekko is a Finnish company that loves to design clothing, bags, fabric and stationery with fresh, unexpected color and print combinations. The pops of color perk up a room and just make you feel good. I got a chance to use some of their stunning stationery.
Marimekko in Pattern is a compendium that showcases how their brand was formed from the 1950’s, spotlights some of their innovative designers, describes how a print is made and features a plethora of iconic prints. Many of these prints have graced European homes for decades, and they still seem timeless. Their passion for bold and color-drenched designs is never-ending, and they are always coming up with new prints. I personally love the prints inspired by nature; they’re breathtaking!
The Notebook Collection is a set of three high-quality notebooks with vibrant covers. There’s colorful binding tape along the spine with matching hues that harmonious with the print. The covers had a nice texture, and each book has 100 lined pages. It’s finished with a printed ribbon to bundle the set.
The Marimekko Flexi Journal is a sweet little book with a colorful garden print on the cover. As it suggests, the book is very flexible, allowing the user to fold if needed. It contains 192 pages of lined or graph paper. Ideal for the creative soul!
Marimekko Sticky Notes & To-Dos is a portfolio with lots of fun prints. I love to bookmark recipes with some homemade tweaks I’ve made. They’re also great for leaving messages for the family or your colleagues. They’re perfect for studying; write down important facts and use them as reminders. The portfolio comes with 2 larger and 8 smaller sticky notes. No home should be without them.
Marimekko also has a Collection of Postcards. The box set includes 100 a comprehensive mixture of 50 different prints.
The panorama of Marimekko prints and textile designs is packaged nicely in this boxed set. They’re great to send out business meeting or party reminders. Or maybe you just want to say a quick hello!
Marimekko is even more products coming out this summer. I can’t wait to see them. Stay tuned, I’ll be showcasing them!
