Marimekko 2024 Kemut Unikko Cotton Poplin Dress


We are all about eliminating fashion waste at Pappa Sven, but we also know that there are items that can still be made beautifully, sustainably and with a very very long lifespan....and this dress is your perfect example.

Generations of Unikko lovers will enjoy this dress before it falls apart at the seams and is repurposed into some sweet napkins.

The Kemut dress is made of organic cotton poplin, and it has a relaxed, straight fit. The dress features the Unikko pattern, which is printed in Helsinki. The dress has an open O-neck, loose, elbow-length sleeves, side seam pockets, and side slits at the hem. The dress comes with a separate belt and it has belt loops at the back piece.

Marimekko dresses are sewn using the whole width of the fabric, and therefore their appearance may vary. Each item is unique.

This product celebrates the 60th anniversary of the Unikko pattern.

Unikko was created by Maija Isola in 1964 and has since become an international icon of print design. The founder of Marimekko, Armi Ratia, believed that it was not possible to faithfully capture the true essence of real flowers in print, which is why floral prints were earlier excluded from Marimekko collections. So, Maija Isola designed Unikko to be an abstraction of a flower rather than a photorealistic rendition. Today, Unikko is a powerful emblem of joy and creativity, seamlessly integrated into Marimekko´s design identity.
