Marimekko

Marimekko is one of the very famous Finnish design company.

This is one of the most famous design called "Unikko."

When I first saw Marimekko's design, I really thought,

"what is this...??"

I never knew what was good about it...until now.


The Finnish design was just like the Finns. It takes time to get used to and like them. But also, you can be addicted to once you get to like them. Now, I do think Marimekko's designs are cute and beautiful.

So, I've decided to a make mobile case, which was lost on May Day, with "lumimarja" cloth.

In the begining, I thouht this tree was the motif of the design, but actually, it was not. After researching Marimekko's web site, I found that the tree called "lumimarja" in Finnish was the motif. (I don't know what "lumimarja" is in English nor in other languages. Please tell me if you know!!)

It is how it looks. Just like usual, it had to be done with hands because I don't have any sewing machines. Making the things worse, I could not find any strings that suites this design, so the string had to be sewed with hands, too.. It took a lot of time, but it's done quite nicely**


I guess many of you may not believe me, but please try to see if you would get to like Marimekko* It's unique and cute!!
