The Heritage of Handcraft as an Inspiration to Marimekko Print Design in New York
TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 20, 2016 | 6 pm-7 pm

In celebration of New York Textile Month, we invite you to join us for an in-depth look at how hand printing influenced pattern design in the 1950s and 1960s, and how this heritage is carried out by present designers. In from Finland, Marimekko’s Artwork Studio Manager, Petri Juslin, will bring his 30 years of experience to an interactive discussion looking at past and current prints, and how he works with print designers to find solutions that will transfer art to functional fabrics, without compromising design.
