The name of this pattern means "Pike" in Finnish, and the Marimekko Hauki White/Plum/Red Mug depicts these fish that frequent Finnish waters even during the cold, harsh winters.

The physical mug is the usual (ideal) Marimekko mug. The fish? They're friendly; and they never add ick to my coffee's aroma.

This mug has an edge, northern pike are like the barracudas of lakes. But the colors are so vibrant, and I'm finding it a fun, assertive way to start my day. It's an 8 oz. mug so I'm cutting down on how much mornin' Joe I'm consuming too. This should become a Marimekko classic!
