In an earlier post, I described a beet juice drink that I love. I said that it reminded me of Marimekko. But the two, beet juice and Marimekko, seem very out of context from one another. Let me explain my strange little headworks. Marimekko is a Finnish design company that made big headway in the 1960's with their bold prints used on textiles. They made and still make clothes, bedlinens, curtains, upholstries, etc. There is one print in particular which is very popular that has big bright magenta flowers all a-burst. Even when I think of the text spelling out "Marimekko" in my mind I think "magenta". So, beets-magenta-Marimekko.
