Marimekko’s most popular print is reinvented again. Maija Isola’s Unikko “Poppy” pattern takes on a fresh new look with this brilliant combination of white and green flowers on a solid black backing. Made of 100% cotton sateen, this bedding is wonderfully soft to the touch – you won’t want to get out of bed once you’re wrapped up.
(See below for measurements)About Sateen:
The sateen weaving process places more threads on the surface of the fabric instead of equally woven within the fabric which results in a weave that is extremely soft to the touch. Slightly less durable than other weaving techniques, the extra soft and luxurious nature of sateen fabrics require a bit more care during washing.
Care: Wash in cold water on the gentle cycle. Tumble dry low. Iron on warm as needed.
Price is for one duvet.

I got this to be a summer duvet for a very expensive Nikken magnetic comforter. I have two dogs who share the bed with me and I needed a duvet that could be washed easily. This is a really nice duvet and washes up beautifully - and the pattern is lovely. The duvet has ties to secure the comforter within and a nice envelope closure with buttons. I like this item and am very glad that I found it on sale on-line.
Pattern, easy to wash, colorful and modern
sooo soft and comfy

Been eyeing these unikko bedsheets for a very long time. I ordered the duvet cover, sheet set and 2 extra pillows of this colour aswell as the red. although red is my fave colour, I absolutely love this one too. The material is a bit thinner than the red unikko, but quality and print is still good. It is much much more softer, silkier and smoother due to the sateen weave and comfortable than the red unikko sheets. I dont want to get out of bed when i have these sheets on my bed. Again like the red unikko ones, these sheets wash up really well and are versatile in that you can team them up with other duvet covers/sheet sets etc. My partner who is one of the most pickiest person in the world, loves these sheet sets, saying that they are very comfortable and the colour scheme is very nice. and my dog Chewie loves lounging around on my bed when I use these sheet sets.

I already have the red print Unikko set at home and ordered the duvet cover and pillow cases for our summer cottage. It looks so cheery and gives a quality look to a cozy bedroom.
Great quality product, as usual from Marimekko. The print is a classic and the colors hold up wash after wash.

I have been in love with the unikko print for a while now and when i saw this color combo on sale i knew it was a must. The colors are beautiful and are true to what is seen in the picture. I bought the full/queen size for a full sized bed and it fits very well. It is a very fun print and I enjoy seeing it everyday!!

This is my third duvet, second one for myself. I'm using it to take the place of a collector duvet cover. I'm very pleased.
Ease of use, well manufactured, timeless form.
Nothing to dislike.
