Ooh… hello Marimekko! I’m a fan, a big fan of this Finnish design house. When I last visited their central London store, they were shut but I spied staff in there. I practically glued my face to the glass front, knocked and begged and pleaded to be allowed in… desperate or what?! But I got in (I think they felt sorry for me). Hey, whatever it takes and it was so worth it as I found these delectable kids suitcases. I’m already crazy about their ‘Karkuteilla’ print which is what these diddy suitcases are adorned with. One look and it had to be
mine ebabee no.1′s. After all it would’ve been rude to make them open shop and not buy anything… that’s what I told daddee no.1 anyway!
These little Marimekko kids suitcases are made of chunky cardboard and come in 3 sizes. The colours are super vibrant and they make for a super cute accessory for a toddler. Mine uses hers to carry her ‘treasures’ in when she’s out for the day and she does insist on carrying it herself. The large one costs £18, the medium £16 and the small £14. Best place to get it is the Marimekko store in London (020 74866454). But you can get it online at the Finnish Design Shop although delivery is steep at €15.
P.S. Here’s a sneak peak of ebabee no.1 with her’s…kids suitcase, nursery bag, storage
