maija louekari





I spoilt myself last week and bought a Marimekko mug designed by Finnish illustrator and designer, Maija Louekari.

Before seeing her work on the new Marimekko range I wasn't aware of her work and since my discovery I have become an instant fan of her beautiful and colourful illustrations. You can view some of Maija Louekari work over on her website or read more about her in an interview on the Marimekko website.

If you're a Melbournite, I bought my new Maija Louekari, Marimekko mug from Douglas & Hope in the CBD. Just incase you were tempted to spoil yourself too...

I love that tea towel so much and bought it in Sweden. You have to treat yourself now and then right :) Hadn't gotten around to finding out about the designer so thanks!
