Meaning "Beehive" in Finnish, Mehilaispesa is mother-daughter duo Maija and Kristina Isola's depiction of beautiful honey homes. The lines carry a subtle shimmer in their metallic tone that gives the set a luxurious look and feel. Mehilaispesa is printed on this 300-thread count, 100% cotton percale Marimekko Full / Queen Duvet Cover Set, which is machine-washable and requires an insert.
This set includes: One duvet cover and two standard shams.
A high-quality weave, percale has a noticeably tighter weave that allows for a higher thread count which makes the sheets softer to the touch. Medium in weight, the fabric is matte with no additional sheen or shine but the texture is very smooth and able to resist warping and washes exceptionally well.
The bold, effusive prints and textiles of Marimekko are the first to come to mind for many when thinking about Finnish design. Founded in 1951 by Finnish couple Viljo and Armi Ratia, the name Marimekko translated literally means "Mary-dress." Marimekko’s impact reaches beyo... More Marimekko
Nice and crisp with just the right amount of softness, highly recommended!

Nice Print (Pieni Leto)
June 1, 2019
I exchanged this print by phone with the Pieni Leto, so my review is for that, though I can only write it here.
I very much like the subtle chaos of that print, which doesn’t attract too much attention but fits in with all that’s going on in the room because it’s so sketchy.
The quality is good as well, so I’ve ordered another Marimekko bedding package (a more colorful one, to switch to as a contrast).
I love this comforter

Beautiful neutral fabric with a touch of sparkle, and contemporary design, this comforter was made for me! Good quality and reasonably priced. I couldn't be happier with my purchase.

I accidentally bought this thinking I was buying a comforter cover . I ended up keeping it because it is so pretty and stylish. Iï¿½€™m using it as a bed cover. The print a shimmer to it that is classy but not too overwhelming. The comforter is a bit stiff and ï¿½€˜noisyï¿½€™ but I assume itï¿½€™s just newness. Iï¿½€™m very pleased with my purchase.
High Quality, Beautiful

the pictures don't do this pattern justice - it has a subtle shiny / glitter that looks marvelous in low light in the bedroom. goes great with other marimekko patterns from previous years as it is neutral. love it!!
Is this intended to have a comforter inside of the cover? What kind of closures does the cover have - buttons? snaps?
Does the fabric feel smooth or does the metallic in the fabric impact the texture and feel of it?
This is a slip that would go over your own comforter/doona/duvet insert.
It is fastened by buttons at the bottom.
