Between all the election excitement and a four day trip to Seattle I’ve gone longer than I’d like between posts — but now I’m back home and hopefully getting back in the fibercopia groove too. A school friend just alerted me to new Marimekko designs for this year and this one – called Pakkanen and designed by Maija Louekari – caught my eye immediately. It comes in two scales but it’s the larger one that seems most interesting. It has a huge repeat – 175 cms – the full width of the fabric. (This is according to the Marimekko website, though at the NYC Marimekko concept store website where it’s sold it says the repeat is bigger than the width of the fabric, which doesn’t make sense. Must be a typo.) I’ve been looking out for some cool fabric for a table cloth for awhile now and I think this is it.
