Annika, NØRDIK's owner, grew up wearing Marimekko to school as a young girl. She remembers how exciting it was to select classic Marimekko clothing designs and pencil pouches for her school supplies every Fall. She keeps Marimekko in her life even now as part of her everyday work wear! So it is only natural that the personal connection Annika has had to Marimekko all her life has inspired her to carry their bold and colorful designs at NØRDIK! Marimekko's core values of sustainability, equality, fairness, common sense, courage and giving back are also in line with NØRDIK's.

Marimekko textiles and home decor

For those of you who are not familiar with the Finnish design powerhouse Marimekko, it is known for its colorful and bold lifestyle designs. Marimekko was founded in 1951 by Armi Ratia (1912 – 1979), a trailblazing textile designer, who began to design bold, unique and colorful print patterns to "stand out from the rest". As she put it "Marimekko is not about trendy fashion. We make timeless and lasting products, which are by chance, often fashionable." As a founder and CEO of Marimekko she became one of the most famous Finnish entrepreneurs. The company grew fast and in the 60's even Jacqueline Kennedy was seen wearing several Marimekko designs!  Nowadays, Marimekko offers high-quality clothing, bags and accessories as well as home décor ranging from textiles to tableware.
