Each t-shirt Laeti-Berlin is a unique product because I silk-screened it in our collective print salon in Berlin.
This impression is serigraphied on one side with the white pattern “Tempelhof” on an black cropped and oversized t-shirt. Like the 80’s-90’s style!
The original image is an urban sketch that I drew on the 30th of April 2011, directly at the location in Berlin-Neukölln in the parc Tempelhofer Feld. As a technique I applied wash drawing and I used my calligraphic pen. I was sitting in the grass, close from the entry of the park at “Oderstr.”. It was beautiful weather at the beginning of spring. I just needed one hour. As I wanted to show only an impression of the atmosphere of this park, I left a lot of space in order to suggest the peaceful sensation of this area.
This illustration is also on my blog “Traversée d’Encres” with urban sketches (“Through The Inks”).
TENCEL® is the lyocell fiber from the house of Lenzing. It is of botanic origin, since it is extracted from the raw material wood. Fiber production itself is extremely ecofriendly, due to the closed loop system which received the “European Award for the Environment”. Textiles of TENCEL® are more absorbent than cotton, softer than silk and cooler than linen.
It offers optimum moisture transportation for your skin’s well-being.
Why is Tencel “THE NEW AGE FIBER”? Because it’s an intelligent micro textile!
Label “FAIR WEAR Foundation”: pro-active social responsibility. So this t-shirt is too fair trade ! About Continental Clothing
You can wash your t-shirt up to 30 °C (86 °F) and you can tumble dry.
Don’t worry! The print will stay perfect after the wash, because I fixed it with a special emulsion and I pressed it to impregnate.
