We had a great morning out at Herttoniemi. Its an easy train trip out and a short walk (less than 10 mins from the station). The outlet store is really large and has great discounts. I bought a lot! We also did the EU tax free paperwork so we got the sales tax refunded when we left the EU which... More

Marimekko has great colorfull designs. But I think it is highly over priced. Anyway it is a must visit when being in Helsinki.

Glorious technicolour dreamcoat of bright, graphic prints. Excellent quality goods, expensive but worth purchasing. Do check out of the outlet/shop in east Helsinki for much better-priced bargains, especially fabric and last season items. I am LOVING my laptop bag.

I enjoyed shopping at Marimekko. The styles are very unique, and the quality is very high. I purchased a very cute top, a cute and sturdy umbrella and a cute necklace. I recommend stopping by when shopping in Helsinki !

I have been a great fan of the Marimekko designs for almost 20 years, when I visited Helsink for the firts time. The Design and patterns are Finnish Design at its very best. Unfortunately the price is not for every pocket and most of the items sold in this main store in Helsinki is very, very expensive.

This factory/outlet shop is only about a 15minute metro and 5-10 minute walk form the centre of Helsinki. The current range seems to be available there although with limited stock and prices appeared to be pretty much in line with the normal retail units. there was quite a lot of stock from last or perhaps end of season lines and...

Loads of tempting items in a wonderful range of patterns and colours but at a price. They offer a cool Helsinki themed design which was our favourite. If you're too mean to go to the outlet shop then pick up some Marrimekko napkins at any of the large supermarkets - then you can wear Marrimekko everyday for only 3 euros!

Marimekko isn't for everyone, but the bright, colourful patterns are playful and cheerful. For me, the main store prices are out of my range, but there is a great factory outlet a metro ride out of town. Take the Herttoniemi metro stop and it's a 5 minute walk to Kirvesmiehenkatu 7 Helsinki 00880. The outlet has great prices on reduced... More

If you have ever been a fan of Marimekko fabrics, the store is a joy. Endless bolts of fabrics neatly stacked ceiling high, arranged by patterns and colors, what ever you can imagine can be found here. Whatever you may need, the sales persons are very sweet and helpful. Everyone seems to speak impeccable English in case you are worried... More

The best way to finish off a city sojourn in Helsinki is to stop off at the Marimekko store for some authentic Finish souvenirs (not those tacky Made in China magnets or cheesy post cards) or your standard woolen Nordic sweaters. The clothes and accessories reflect the Scandinavian artistic style but uncharacteristically bright colors. The prices are expensive by North... More
