Each gym bag Laeti-Berlin is a unique product because I silk-screened it in our collective print salon in Berlin.
This impression is serigraphied in white on one side with the pattern “Cuvrystr.”, on a black gym bag.
The original image is an urban sketch that I drew with my calligraphic pen and with dry pastels on the 10th of March 2010 directly at the location in Berlin-Kreuzberg. This illustration represents the graffiti of the street artist Blu located in the street “Cuvrystraße”. Close to the river Spree and the crossroads of Schlesische Str. I was sitting in front of the big wall of graffitis, on the other side of this nomansland. I needed one hour for this illustration.
A typical place, made in Berlin, where these are dying out. But thanks to this urban sketch you have a souvenir of this graffiti.
This illustration is also on my blog “Traversée d’Encres” with urban sketches (“Through The Inks”).
This gym bag “Cuvrystr.” – natural is a light cloth bag that is closed at the top with a drawstring, used to carry sports clothes or equipment.
Now it is etablished as a street accessory for active people. Practice & fashion product in Berlin! Everybody has a “Turnbeutel” 😉
An all-round gym bag made of special high-quality organic cotton, with two strong cords to string – extremely practical e.g. as little backpack, cinch bag or shoe bag.
A small, lateral flag communicates in a subtle but obvious way the superior environmentally and socially acceptable quality: the entire production process is certified by GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standards).
Added to this, the approved fair trade mark!
Don’t worry, the print will stay perfect because I fixed it with a special emulsion and I pressed it to impregnate.
