Silkkikuikka Cotton Fabric, 1 yd

Regular price $53.00

The Silkkikuikka pattern on this unbleached heavyweight cotton fabric is printed in Helsinki.

This fabric was printed with natural indigo, a plant-based dye extracted from Finnish woad. It is characteristic that color will naturally soften during washes, use, and light. Please store this product away from light. Avoid contact with perfume, hairspray, and other chemicals.

“I was dancing with brushes,” said Maija Isola. In 1961, she spent many evenings and nights working in Marimekko’s print factory – painting in gentle, sweeping brushstrokes to the sway of music. Meter upon meter of new patterns emerged. On one of those nights, Silkkikuikka (great crested grebe), a pattern of alluring rhythm and simplicity, saw daylight. This design has a very long repeat.

Although this pattern is available in 1-yard increments, the full repeat is 2.75 yards.
