This cotton cushion cover features the Joonas pattern, which is printed in Helsinki. The cover has a concealed zipper on one side.
Marimekko cushion covers are sewn using the whole width of the fabric, and therefore their appearance may vary slightly. Each item is unique. This fabric was printed with a colour mixed from dyes left over from Marimekko's printing production. Colours of individual products may vary due to the different mixtures of leftover dyes used. 25% of the cotton used in this product is recycled cotton.

In 1961, Maija Isola spent many evenings and nights working in Marimekko’s print factory – painting in gentle, sweeping brushstrokes to the sway of music. Meter upon meter of new patterns emerged. On one of those nights, Joonas (Jonah), a pattern inspired by the sun dancing on the waves of the Mediterranean, saw the light of day.
