Marimekko's prints have the ability to merge modern and retro in a timeless way. Called Alku (Initial), the design depicts the seeds from which the flowers of Marimekko's bold floral designs grow. Here, it's featured on a washed linen-cotton blend table runner. The soft material matches the subdued shades and a all-around fringe (green on two sides, ivory on the other) gives it a cozy feel.

Care: Machine washable. Follow instructions on tag.
