Per the Vintage Fashion Guild: "Marimekko is a Finnish company that was founded in 1951 by Armi and Viljo Ratia. At the suggestion of designer Riitta Immonen, the Ratias’s, who were manufacturing boldly printed fabric, began making dresses from the fabric. The first dresses were designed by Immonen. Marimekko is famous for their brightly printed textiles – large abstracts and floral fabrics used for home décor and made into simple clothing and handbags. In 1954, their copyrighted logo was created."
