A Timeless and Sustainable Choice
We are on a mission to design more long-lasting and sustainable products in each of our seasonal collections. The Kompassi and Suutima coats are the first Marimekko ready-to-wear pieces made with 100% recycled polyester.
All smartbags from our pre-fall 2020 collection and onward will be made from 100% recycled polyester.
Why Recycled Polyester?
Recycled polyester is made of consumer plastic waste like plastic bottles. It is obtained by melting down existing plastic and re-spinning it into new polyester fiber. Five soda bottles yields enough polyester fiber for one extra large t-shirt.
