Blanket with fringes and tree ring pattern
The Vuosirenkaat blanket from Marimekko is made of a wonderfully cuddly wool blend and has been produced with a jacquard knit. The blanket not only has a soft, combed surface with fringes at the ends, but is also particularly environmentally friendly: 25% of the sheep's wool and 30% of the cotton used in this product are recycled.
The colourful pattern comes from Tytti Laitakari. When she had the idea for Vuosirenkaat (Tree Rings), she first thought of striped animal fur patterns and architectural shapes from Morocco. While Laitakari was sketching the design, shapes resembling tree rings also began to appear in the pattern - symbolising the eventful years of Marimekko , which celebrates its 70th anniversary in 2021.
