It’s easy to appreciate blue skies, beaming sunshine and a slight breeze; after all, it’s what most of us would consider pleasant weather. Perhaps that’s why the recent Marimekko Sääpäiväkirja (Weather Diary) collection was so impactful; instead, it explored the unexpected beauty that can be found in all of Mother Nature’s sky shows.
The Jussarö pattern uses different hues of blue to build ominous rain clouds, each one dripping with thick bands of rain against a dark, navy sky. Designer Aino-Maija Metsola named the pattern after the island of Jussarö, an old abandoned mining settlement. Now known as Finland’s official ghost town, Jussarö is still greeted by one devoted visitor: the Gulf of Finland’s wavering weather.
The hauntingly beautiful print is available in 100% cotton fabric, printed at Marimekko’s textile factory in Helsinki, Finland. Among other things, the Marimekko Jussarö Blue Fabric would be beautiful made into curtains, framing your favorite window where you watch real rainstorms roll by.
