The Lumikukka sweater is made with a shiny silver and a melange grey thread. As the two threads alternate throughout the knitted fabric, they make the large poppy flower of the Unikko (poppy) pattern pop out in the front. The sweater has ribbing at the neckline, hemline, and sleeve ends.
Unikko (poppy), symbolizing creativity, was born in a time when hardly any floral designs were included in Marimekko’s collections. Maija Isola, however, was fascinated by the theme of flowers and decided to create an entire range of novel floral prints.
