My favourtie Finnish brand Marimekko has opened a shop in Soho, NYC  (squeals with delight, now just open a store in Dublin, Ireland).

Marimekko is a leading Finnish textile and clothing design company that was established in 1951. The company designs, manufactures and markets high-quality clothing, interior decoration textiles, bags and other accessories under the Marimekko brand, both in Finland and abroad.

A 1,700-square-foot Marimekko Shop opened recently at Crate & Barrel in New York’s SoHo, featuring wildly colorful textiles, accessories, bags, bed and bath, kitchen, dining and apparel products.

Known for its playful and distinctive prints, Marimekko has launched a slew of new products including glassware, wallpaper, shoes and jewelry.

The brand has launched in the U.S and also hopes to eventually roll out to more Crate & Barrel units if it’s successful plus Marimekko flagships around the U.S. Marimekko also plans to launch an e-commerce web site next spring and wholesale the apparel to department and specialty stores.

Big love to Marimekko and please come to Ireland soon : )
