Be environmentally–conscious in more ways than one with the Marimekko Pieni Unikko Silver Medal Bag. Marimekko hates to see fabric go to waste, but they also have a strict inspection process to ensure quality. Combine these two traits and voilà; the silver medal bag is born. If fabric doesn't meet the "gold medal" standard, which is fewer than four flaws per bolt, then it becomes silver medal (and without knowing this secret, you'd never notice.)
