Since 1951, their modern textile designs have brought bright, modern style to homes around the world, Jackie O.’s wardrobe, and now, your parties. The design house’s ever-evolving aesthetic reflects the beauty and charm of Finnish hospitality and will make a perfect accompaniment to your stateside festivities. Entertain your guests with Marimekko’s design philosophy in mind and send timelessly fashionable invitations and greetings with the help of Paperless Post’s suite of online tools.

Newer prints inspired by modern Finnish life will help you bring a little Scandinavian coziness to the winter holidays. Even beyond Marimekko’s most famous work, you’ll find designs that reflect new explorations in Finnish design and modern life.

No matter the time of year, our online design tool lets you add your personal flourish to any option you choose.
