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 green pattern “Potsdamer Platz” on a white t-shirt. The original image is an urban sketch that I drew on the 12th of November 2009 directly at the location in Berlin Mitte-Tiergarten. As a technique I applied wash drawing and I used my calligraphic pen. I was sitting on the steps of the Kulturforum because from where I can have a beautiful overview of Potsdamer Platz. It was sunny and I needed around one hour.
You can see this illustration 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 🙂
You can wash your t-shirt up to 30 °C (86 °F) and you can tumble dry.
Don’t worry! The illustration will stay perfect after the wash, because I fixed it with a special emulsion and I pressed it to impregnate.
