Joonas heavyweight cotton fabric.
This heavyweight cotton fabric features the Joonas pattern, which is printed in Helsinki.
This fabric was printed with a colour mixed from dyes left over from our own printing production. Colours may vary due to the different mixtures of leftover dyes used. 25% of the cotton used in this fabric is recycled cotton.
In 1961, Maija Isola spent many evenings and nights working in Marimekko’s print factory – painting in gentle, sweeping brushstrokes to the sway of music. Meter upon meter of new patterns emerged. On one of those nights, Joonas (Jonah), a pattern inspired by the sun dancing on the waves of the Mediterranean, saw the light of day.
