vartto pieni unikko shirtclothing
The Vartto shirt is made of cotton poplin in the Pieni Unikko (poppy) pattern. The shirt has a slit, and button closure at the back neckline, cropped sleeves and topstitched central front and back seams.
Unikko (poppy) was born in 1964 after Armi Ratia, Marimekko’s founder, had announced that Marimekko would never print a flower pattern. Maija Isola refused to obey Armi’s orders and – in protest – created an entire series of gorgeous floral prints. One of them was Unikko which has become a story of creativity, strength, courage and faith in oneself.
