Featuring a mama and baby bear in Finnish folkloric fashion, this fabric portrays love and protection. Called Karhuemo (Mother Bear), this design by Aino-Maija Metsola is based on a sketch she made from Marimekko's 70th anniversary in 2021. Here, it's featured in two shades of greige (a mix of grey and beige) on Marimekko fabric made from Panama cotton. The fabric feels slightly thicker than standard Marimekko cotton fabrics with a more canvas-like feel that that mimics the construction and durable texture of the Panama hat. It could be used to make clothing or home accessories such as wall hangings and curtains. The textile art would also create a beautiful wall hanging when stretched over canvas.
