     “Because I don’t drive, I’ve spent a lot of time looking out of the window from the passenger’s seat. When seen from a moving car, the flowers, meadows and fields lose their details and become fields of colour. I created Meadow by dispersing the dye on the printing roller into small droplets using pressurised air. This allowed me to capture the wonderful colours of roadside flowers and meadows on fabric. ” Timo Sarpaneva

    Kukkaketo tablecloth is part of Finlayson’s Ambiente home textile collection, which is based on the printed fabrics created by Timo Sarpaneva, one of the greatest industrial designers of our time. Sarpaneva painted the original pattern that depicts the splendour of meadow flowers directly on the fabric with a printing machine. He and his pressmen developed the unique painting technique by chance. The method become known as the Ambiente technique. Fabrics printed with this technique became hugely popular, and they continue to be one of the best examples of 1960s design and Finnish printing expertise.

    Finlayson uses digital printing to reproduce the Meadow pattern on the tablecloths. Digital printing enables using an unlimited number of colours, which makes the originally vibrant colours come to life.

    The tablecloth is made of a cotton and linen blend in thick rib weave. Linen gives a nice, slightly rough texture to the fabric. The handy Easy Care treatment makes the fabric easier to iron after washing. The tablecloth is at its best when the drop is about 25–35 cm from the edge of the table. Take a look at the unique Kukkaketo napkins that are made from the same fabric.

    The tablecloth has been granted the STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX certificate, indicating that the product does not contain harmful chemicals and is safe to use.


    Story of the Ambiente technique: The unique printing technique was created by chance when a paper printing machine malfunctioned at Rosenlew paper mill in Pori, splashing dye all over the sheet of paper. Timo Sarpaneva, one of the greatest industrial designers and artists of our time, was supervising the printing process and saw the mistake as an opportunity: “If something is born spontaneously, it should be studied in more detail,” he said and began exploring the technique in more detail with professional pressmen from Tampere. Later on, the technique was used in industrial production, both in paper printing and the textile and clothing industry. The seemingly random patterns were carefully controlled. “I used the massive printing machine to paint landscapes and memories on fabric,” Sarpaneva described years later.
