Maija Isola
was one of the first designers of Marimekko, the Finnish design company for which she worked for 38 years. But who was she? What were the values at the centre of her wandering life, and what legacy did she leave us? What is the secret behind her textile creations that first conquered Finland, then the whole world? This documentary tells the story of this extraordinary artist.
