The Pakkanen (frost) design by Maija Louekari cleverly depicts the feel of a cold winter's day; the cheek-pinching frost, and the tiny birds ruffling their feathers in the leafless rowans, the last berries of which glint against the white landscape.

Whether you are setting the table for a fika, or a smörgåsbord, dressing the occasion up with good design is always a good thing!  Start with the napkin design, and build from there.

5 x 5 inches

Maija Louekari is a Helsinki-based freelance illustrator and designer. The starting point of her career was in 2003.

That’s when she won a design competition co-organized by Marimekko and the University of Art and Design Helsinki. Inspired by small observations of everyday life, Maija’s patterns combine narrative line drawing with skillful use of powerful color surfaces. Her most recognizable designs for Marimekko are Siirtolapuutarha (city garden) and Räsymatto (rag rug).
