Biographical history

The Marimekko Corporation is a Finnish textiles and clothing company that was established in 1951 as the Marimekko Textile Company. Its operations are based on the original Marimekko brand and the Marimekko concept, which is derived from the brand and represents the company's lifestyle thinking. There are three product lines: clothing, interior decoration and accessories.
Marimekko was founded by Armi and Viljo Ratia. The company's business concept emerged from a strong desire to create something new, unique, long-lasting and beautiful for post-war Finland.
The 1960s saw a rapid growth in the business operations of the company and its rise to international prominence. Following a restructuring programme in the late 1960s, the company transferred its operations to its own works site in Herttoniemi, Helsinki, Finland in 1973. The company was taken over by the Amer Group in 1991.
