Alku is an oven mitten from Marimekko in cotton with the graphical Alku pattern in green. The oven mitten is filled with polyester for you to be able to take something hot out of the oven peacefully. Combine with the Alku pot holder for a unitary look in the kitchen.
The bean-like shapes in the Alku (beginning) design represent the seeds from which the flowers of the Eläköön elämä (long live life) pattern have grown.
Both prints were created to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the Siirtolapuutarha (city garden) pattern designed by Maija Louekari in 2009 for Sami Ruotsalainen’s Oiva (superb) tableware.
