Pattern Story: Piccolo
Designed by Vuokko Eskolin-Nurmesniemi, 1953.
Vuokko Eskolin-Nurmesniemi created Piccolo, a striped fabric pattern painted with vivid brushstrokes, in 1953 - the year she joined Marimekko.
Three years later, the Jokapoika (every boy) shirt was designed using the Piccolo pattern. The iconic shirt has been in continuous production in countless imaginative color combinations ever since.
This season, Jokapoika meets Jokatyttö (every girl), a feminine interpretation of the classic piece.
