On a recent trip to the Pacific Northwest I visited the Nordic Heritage Museum in Seattle. A small but worthwhile exhibit of the Finnish design firm, Marimekko, that was so popular and influential in the late 60’s and early 70’s, really was “a blast from the past.” The pop imagery and vibrant colors really evoke the exuberance of that time in fashion – still one of my favorites. The company was founded in 1951 and they are still going strong today. You can find out more about their heritage and where to find their products on their website click here
