Alku Tea Towel, Black

By Marimekko

The elegant Alku Tea Towel is crafted from cotton that is soft and delicate. A beautiful design piece, this monochrome tea towel will bring a sophisticated and elegant touch to your table setting. The beautiful white and black design depicts the seeds of a new beginning, injecting a breath of fresh air into your home as well as making a thoughtful gift. Maximum shrinkage 6%. Wash before use at 60° as specified in the washing instructions on the label. Do not add fabric conditioner.

The Alku pattern was designed by Maiji Louekari, a Helsinki-based freelance illustrator and designer. Her career took off after she won a design competition co-organised by Marimekko and the University of Art & Design Helsinki. Her winning design is still available in Marimekko’s home collection. Maija has produced many famous designs for Marimekko that are printed on fabrics, tableware and textiles worldwide. Her most famous prints include Siirtolapuutarha (city garden) and Räsymatto (rag rug). She designed the first prints for the Oiva range that is celebrating its 10th Anniversary this year and the Eläkoon Elämä pattern.
