Yup, you guessed it! More surrur.
The one and only - surrur.

Hip-hip-hooray! Iconic Finnish textile brand, Marimekko, is turning the big six-oh and is celebrating in style.

To mark the milestone they are sharing 60 gems from their treasure trovepartnering with Converse and have revealed the creative process behind many Marimekko designers in a book called surrur.

They also invited more than 34,000 Facebook followers to be part of a collective global project that asked fans to show what they could do with Marimekko’s iconic fabrics. The creators behind the most interesting ideas were invited to the brand’s HQ to take part in a Take Part. Make Art! workshop and were then exhibited at Jannelli & Volpi.

Here’s a behind-the-scenes peek at the workshop:

Here’s hoping I look this fine when I hit 60!
