Textile Arts's Marimekko fall collection renders the Finnish style giant's trademark bold designs in cotton. For Valmuska, Erja Hirvi took inspiration from the underside of mushroom caps. Here, the 11- to 20-inch diameter motifs cluster down the center of a solid background. For Pernukka, Hirvi returned to the harvest theme; but this time, a cornucopia of fruits and vegetables are pickled and preserved in jars of all shapes and sizes. Both patterns are available in four colorways. Terttu, an oversize botanical from Aino-Maija Metsola, is bursting with color as a bunch of berries vie for space among leaves against a vibrant purple ground. Ginkgo, from designer Kristina Isola, displays extra-large Ginkgo leaves floating, amber-like, in a solid background. Each leaf measures nearly 21 inches in diameter, with a 2-inch stem. It is offered in four colorways, including burnt orange on khaki. 888-343-7285; txtlart.com. circle 464
