Get Jars Cleaned Out Like Never Before

We Stumbled Upon this Promotional Spoon in Milan. Designed in 1962 to Help Kraft Launch in Italy.

And, we've been using this handy jar spoon ever since (and, have been known to gift it to many family and friends). The Sleek spoon was designed by Achille Castiglioni and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni in 1962 for Kraft Foods. Kraft was launching mayonnaise to the Italian market, a then not common Italian food staple, and it needed a promotional item to help encourage Italians to try Kraft's product. We heard this story first-hand from Castiglioni's daughter Giovanna at her father's foundation in Milan, the Achille Castiglioni Foundation.

Their practical approach to daily necessities is clearly expressed in this jar spoon: it is specially designed for retrieving those last bits at the bottom of a jar of mayonnaise...or jam or mustard and the list goes on. 

The original design originally produced in 1962 as a promotional object for Kraft to its new Italian customers was reissued by in 1997.

Size Chart

Marimekko Sizing

Size charts can help you to determine your own size. When you order clothes, it is worth remembering that using a tape measure can help you to ensure that the clothes are a good fit. This will help you to avoid returning clothes unnecessarily. The pictures show where you should take measurements. The measurements on the size chart are fixed body measurements in inches. The measurements are for normal body shapes (the basis is the C measurement).
 

A – Collar:
The collar size is measured by placing the tape measure around the neck and placing the index finger between the tape measure and the throat. This measurement dictates the shirt size.

B – Bust:
The bust size is measured from the highest point of the bust when a bra is worn.

C – Waist:
The waist size is measured around the narrowest part of the waist.

D – Hip:
The hip measurement is taken from the broadest part of the hip.

E – Inside leg:
The inside leg measurement is taken from the crotch to the floor. Please note that the inside leg measurement of trousers is often provided in the product description.
