One year Marimekko released clothes which included fur and some of the people went insane. Marimekko's designers get their inspirations mostly from the nature. Older Marimekko's designs are super hippy-ish with all those trippy shapes and colors. Then suddenly there's mink included in these designings. I don't know if they wanted to get rid of the hippy image and show that they can do other stuff too for the snob Finns by including mink. But it seems like these snob Finns even like Marimekko as a hippy-ish brand.
