Maija Isola was always inspired by the nature surrounding her when she started to create things. The Joonas pattern emerged after the Finnish designer visited the Mediterranean sea. Isola designed her Joonas design because she was impressed by the light effects of the sun on the waves.
Joonas is a strong, graphic pattern with expressive lines that are even reinforced by the black/white colour of the pillowcase. The big black shapes on the pillowcase from Marimekko make up dynamic effects, like waves on the water.
The Joonas case is soft, cosy and easily cleaned since it is made of 100% cotton. The Joonas pillowcase by Marimekko can be washed at 60°C.
