Finnish textiles firm Marimekko’s has opened a new store in Malmö, Sweden.

It is the company's second Swedish shop and opened to the public on 15 November.

The 125-square-metre store sells printed fabrics and other interior decoration products as well as clothes, bags and accessories.

Marimekko said the new store is a continuation of work started in 2009 to expand its distribution network.

Last year Marimekko’s shop in Stockholm was expanded and remodelled, and a new concept store was opened in Copenhagen.

"Malmö is a highly central city in Southern Sweden, where Marimekko is already very well known. By opening a shop based on our updated retail store concept in the city, we aim to further reinforce our presence in this area.

"As Sweden’s third-largest city, Malmö is also attractive to us because of its large customer flows. The Öresund bridge merges Malmö and Copenhagen into the Nordic region’s largest metropolitan area, with some 2.4m inhabitants. We have now two retail shops of our own in Sweden, and I see potential in the market for more shops in the future," says Mika Ihamuotila, president and CEO of Marimekko.
