Marimekko launches a new e-shop today in collaboration with Crate and Barrel following its store-within-a-store at Crate and Barrel's SoHo location.

The two companies have long been partners and Marimekko's patterns have been available at Crate and Barrel since 1967.  This new venture expands the Finnish design house's access to the North American market.  Crate and Barrel will have exclusive rights to retail Marimekko interior decoration products in the US and Canada such as glassware, pillows, fabric, bags and accessories, as well as Marimekko products made under licence such as bedding and bath textiles.
