Marimekko’s design philosophy and operations have always been based on a sustainable approach: we want to provide our customers with timeless, functional and durable products that bring them long-lasting joy and that they will not want to throw away.
Sustainability is one of the most significant drivers of change in the fashion and textile industry. Long-lasting products play a key role in the development of the fashion industry’s sustainability. Doubling the lifespan of clothes can reduce the industry’s emissions by as much as 44 percent.
At Marimekko, we want to be at the forefront of developing more sustainable products and practices. In our current sustainability strategy, we have therefore raised our sustainability targets to a new, markedly more ambitious level.
