These Marimekko reflectors are a stylish safety accessory. According to Wikipedia, “The reflector is claimed to be an absolutely Finnish creation, invented by a Finnish farmer from Pertteli, a small township in Western Finland. Interestingly enough, the inventor did not consider pedestrian safety when creating the first reflectors: he simply wished to protect his horse carts and carriages. Reflectors were introduced to Finns in 1960.”
