Finland is known as the happiest country in the world. Lets unravel the secret from the customs of this country
In May of this year, I read an article about a collaboration between UNIQLO, the brand of Japan, where I live, and Marimekko, the fashion brand of Finland.
I went to the Marimekko exhibition in Tokyo a few years ago. so I’ve always been interested in this collaboration project. I will write an article about “Talkoot”, one of the seven designs featured in the collaboration.
（Talkoot）：Fujiwo Ishimoto, 1978
-Talkoot (work party) is an exuberant and painterly floral design. Flowers and the whole of nature with its myriad phenomena have always been the most important source of inspiration for Fujiwo Ishimoto.
“Talkoot” means “a place to work and enjoy with friends and colleagues” in Finnish.
In Finland, it is customary to recruit friend volunteers when you need help, such as moving or cleaning the garden. After helping with the work, the person who asked for help will serve meals and saunas. Environmental groups may also call for cleaning the beach.
