Maija Isola's popular Unikko pattern was created in the 1960's during the height of modern design and has since remained one of the most iconic patterns of all time. Delving into oversized design and deconstructed shapes led Isola to create large than life patterns. Large black poppy flowers are printed over a white background to create a vivid and graphic print that impresses any design connoisseur. Made in Finland from 100% cotton, it's coated in acrylic to serve in spots that might get a little messy - such as a tablecloth or placemats. Acrylic-coated cotton makes minor messes easily wiped clean, but also allows it to be machine washable for more major spills. It feels coarser than untreated cotton, but still feels like fabric and not like vinyl of earlier fabric. Plus, the eco-friendly treatment helps to avoid wrinkling when folded!
