Maija Isola designed Unikko in 1964, and it remains one of Marimekko's most iconic patterns today. In the signature red colorway, but on a Pieni (small) scale, the Marimekko Pieni Unikko Red Cotton Fabric is just right for summer frocks or year-round drapes.

Great for Patching Jeans

I have used this design to deliberately patch my torn jeans alongside the Marimekko Pieni Unikko Blue Fabric. What a difference this makes. I receive really great complements everywhere I go, people ask where did I get those jeans?
I am wanting to make a window seat cushion out of the black/white Lokki fabric, And use the Pieni Unikko red fabric as the border. Would this cotton fabric hold up or do I need to use the upholstery fabric? Ii see you have the Pieni Unikko red fabric in upholstery material but not the black/white Lokki fabric. I also read in your descriptions that you suggested you could use these cotton fabric materials to make a bedspread, so I was wondering if you thought this would be suitable for a window seat?
Marimekko recommends to use only upholstery weight fabric for any high wear-and-tear areas such as seat cushions
