The Päärynä Tea Towels from legendary Finnish design house Marimekko brightens any kitchen with their bold patterns. Designed by Maija Isola, this set of two tea towels feature a charming and vivid pear design—one with several orange pears, and the other with a large green pear. Perfect for everyday kitchen use, these tea towels are equally delightful when hung, as they bring vibrant color to a neutral interior. Made from a linen and cotton blend, the Päärynä Tea Towels are soft and not abrasive to dishes or hands, while also maintaining durability.

Maija Isola (1927–2001) designed her first printed textiles in 1949 for Printex Oy, Marimekko’s predecessor. She worked as head designer of Marimekko’s interior fabrics until 1987. She also had an illustrious career as a visual artist.
Founded in 1951 by Armi Ratia and her husband, Viljo, Marimekko is a Finnish company that designs and manufactures high-quality fabrics and tableware, as well as clothing, bags, and other accessories. Characterized by saturated colors and bold patterns, Marimekko’s products are strong and visually striking, but they do not exclude delicacy or softness. Rather, Marimekko’s designs exist on a line between hard and soft, inspired by both urban elements and natural ones, and by tradition and modernity. Although founded over sixty years ago, Marimekko remains relevant, as it promotes a timeless quality. Fashion and design may have short-lived trends, but Marimekko encourages its designers to create textiles and products that endure, both physically and visually.
