marimekko cotton fabric | primavera
Meaning spring in Italian, "Primavera" is a pattern painted by Maija Isola when she was living in Oran, Algeria.
Because of this, it's thought it has a touch of homesickness in it. Perhaps Isola was yearning to be back in Finland where wildflowers like marigold bloom in the morning dew?
Here, the flowers are stunning in shades of lilac and green on a fresh ecru backdrop. Printed in Finland, this 100% cotton fabric can bring botanical beauty to windows as curtains or tables as a runner.
