Marimekko Pieni Karhuemo Bag
Made from cotton panama, this bag features the Pieni Karhuemo pattern, which is printed in Helsinki.
Our tote bags are sewn using the whole width of the fabric, and therefore their appearance may vary slightly. Each item is unique.
The Karhuemo (mother bear) pattern is based on a plant-themed sketch made by Aino-Maija Metsola for the Ruudut (squares) print created in collaboration between four designers for Marimekko’s spring collection for 2021, the year of the company’s 70th anniversary. Among the flowers and leaves in the original sketch, Aino-Maija added a bear with its cub. The ground is rumbling under the galloping mother bear, while the baby has reared on its hind legs to observe the land.
