Once there was Liberty’s of London. Now there is Marimekko,
the leading Finnish textile and clothing design company that’s been around since the 50’s but continues to be the favorite of designers around the globe.
Browsing their site is always an inspiration, but the opportunity for this post came from another site: Always Mod. Always Mod is the ultimate marimekko eshop for anyone based in US – and in addition to their vast selection of textiles and other products, they have an index of free downloadable desktop wallpapers.
In fact, our first background is a marimekko pattern from this list.
What’s next? We are eagerly awaiting for the new marimekko/converse All Star sneakers, coming up later on 2011.
Update February 8th, 2011: Converse ♥ Marimekko
