The Tilkkutäkki Waist Apron from designer Maija Louekari offers both functional mess protection and bold graphic intrigue. Made of 100 percent cotton, the apron is designed to be worn comfortably around the waist, and features a convenient, adjustable tie in a bright chartreuse. The colorful and lively pattern is inspired by patchwork handicraft traditions, and takes cooking prep from mundane to joyful. When not in use, Marimekko's Tilkkutäkki Waist Arpon can be hung by its tie, adding decorative color to the kitchen. The apron can be used on its own, or along with the Tilkkutakki Pot Holder and Oven Mitten for a vibrant, cohesive kitchen statement.
Dimensions: 34" W x 27.5" H
Materials: 100% Cotton
Apron ties around the waist and has a side pocket.
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.
