The Pikku Peruskassi bag is made of heavyweight cotton canvas in the Piccolo pattern, which is printed in Helsinki. The bag has handles and a wide detachable shoulder strap. There is a zipper pocket and a magnetic button closure on the inside.
In her first year at Marimekko in 1953, designer Vuokko Eskolin-Nurmesniemi created Piccolo, a striped fabric painted with freehand brushstrokes. Three years later, a Piccolo print shirt called Jokapoika became the first piece of Marimekko menswear to hit the stores and the streets.
