“Marimekko was first introduced to the United States by the architect Benjamin C. Thompson, and made famous by Jacqueline Kennedy, who bought eight Marimekko dresses which she wore throughout the 1960 US Presidential campaign.

Marimekko is a Finnish company based in Helsinki and has made important contributions to fashion, especially in the 1960s. It is particularly noted for brightly colored printed fabrics and simple styles, used both in women’s garments and in home furnishings. “ wikipedia.org
