Description: The kaftan-like Kaiku dress is made of a cotton and linen blend, and it has a relaxed, A-line fit. The dress features the placement print Heijastus Unikko pattern, which is printed in Helsinki. The dress has an O-neck with a concealed zipper in the back and loose kimono sleeves. The dress is made of four pieces; it has a waist seam and central seams in the front and back. Unikko was created by Maija Isola in 1964 and has since become an international icon of print design. The founder of Marimekko, Armi Ratia, believed that it was not possible to faithfully capture the true essence of real flowers in print, which is why floral prints were earlier excluded from Marimekko collections. So, Maija Isola designed Unikko to be an abstraction of a flower rather than a photorealistic rendition. Today, Unikko is a powerful emblem of joy and creativity, seamlessly integrated into Marimekko´s design identity.
