Oval jute placemat with pattern
The Melooni placemat by Marimekko is an oval placemat made of natural jute that protects the dining table from crumbs and other dirt. The three-coloured Melooni pattern is woven from different coloured jute threads. This material is durable and requires less water, fertilizers and pesticides to grow than cotton.
Melooni (melon), a large, relaxed pattern of stylized natural shapes, is one of the many designs in Maija Isola's work from the 1960s. It captures the spirit of the times brilliantly.
