The Tilkkutäkki Oven Mitten from designer Maija Louekari offers both functional heat protection and bold graphic intrigue. Made of 100 percent cotton with a heat-protective polyester filling, the mit is designed to conveniently fit over one’s hand when removing a tray from the oven or lifting a hot lid off of a pot on the stovetop. The colorful and lively pattern is inspired by patchwork handicraft traditions, and takes the act of cooking from mundane to joyful. When not in use, Marimekko's Tilkkutäkki Oven Mitten can be hung by its convenient metal hook, adding decorative color to the kitchen. The mit can be used on its own, or along with the Tilkkutakki Pot Holder and Waist Apron for a vibrant, cohesive kitchen statement.
Dimensions: 12.4" H x 6.3" W
Materials: 100% Cotton, Polyester Fill
Maija Louekari was born in Oulu, Finland in 1982. Her designs for Marimekko exhibit a marked sense of location, time, and space. She has portrayed both the crowds of metropolises as the fabric Hetkiä and traditional Finnish landscapes as Kaiku, in a highly vivid manner. Her expressive line drawings and large planes of color combine to create a strong impression of three-dimensionality.
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.
