Basil Bangs + Marimekko = AMAZING

Who doesn’t know, and arguably love, the iconic Marimekko Unikko print? This beauty is certainly one of the Finnish design house’s best-known prints. As the story goes, it was created in 1964 by Maija Isola to prove to Marimekko founder Armi Ratia that a floral print could (and would) be amazing. And indeed it is, standing the test of time and looking as contemporary today as it did in the 60’s.

Recently, the lovely Suzanne from Bolt of Cloth in New Zealand got in touch about making up some umbrellas with Unikko and Joonas print fabric. This is how they turned out:


Amazing, right? Happy, sunny and beautiful…everything we want our umbrellas to be.

And before you ask…no, we’re not selling them ourselves but do get in touch with the team at Bolt of Cloth if you’d like a piece of the action!
