This festive and folkloric print by Aino-Maija Metsola is called Marimekko Ketunmarja, or "Fox Berry." As the name suggests, it depicts a whimsical woodland scene of foxes and birds among juicy berries. The greige (grey + beige) backdrop allows these crisp colors to truly pop on this Marimekko placemat. Acrylic-coated cotton makes minor messes easily wiped clean, but also allows it to be machine washable for more major spills.

Care: Machine washable. Follow instructions on tag
