Marimekko Launches E-commerce Site in U.S.

       

       

NEW YORK–Marimekko has debuted an e-commerce site for the United States on its brand site, marimekko.com.

The site showcases the brand’s offerings in home décor, textiles, apparel and accessories. Marimekko North America will be in charge of this new e-commerce operation.

In a company statement, the brand said the new site marks “another significant phase in its extensive North American expansion plan.” Its introduction comes on the heels of its U.S. marketplace launch, which included the opening of several Marimekko shops within Crate & Barrel stores in New York, Chicago, San Francisco and Los Angeles.

Marimekko has also scheduled the opening of its first U.S. flagship store, a 4,000 square-foot location in New York City’s Flatiron District, in September. It has also slated the opening of 18 more Marimekko shops within Crate & Barrel locations by the end of 2013.
