More Marimekko

I'll have an update shortly on the Marimekko Rose patterned scarf I posted earlier but in the meantime here's Tiger wearing another vintage Marimekko print scarf. I found this fabric mounted as a wall hanging. The print is called Kumiseva and was designed in 1971 by Japanese designer Katsuji Wakisaka. The print shows the roofs of a Finnish or Russian village but as you can see, when it is broken up into a small scarf it becomes quite abstracted. And this is a small scarf. I had just enough fabric to make a handful of these short neck wraps backed with black cotton satin.
