Maija Isola’s popular Unikko pattern was created in the 1960’s during the height of modern design, and has since remained an iconic pattern of the time. Delving into oversized deign and deconstructed shapes led Isola to create larger than life patterns, but here, her famous poppy flowers are taken down to a smaller (pieni) scale. Beige and navy blue blossoms are featured on this 100% acrylic-coated cotton fabric for fashion or home décor crafting. This type of fabric is most popular for areas that need to withstand a bit of mess; it serves well crafted into tablecloths and placemats.
Please note: This fabric is coated in acrylic, not PVC as Marimekko fabric previously was. Although it is less shiny and smooth than the PVC fabrics, it has even greater benefits. A safe and eco-friendly alternative, acrylic-coating has better stain repellent qualities than PVC, is machine-washable, and is foldable without leaving marks on the fabric.
