Each top 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 red pattern “Cuvrystrasse” on a long black t-shirt in organic cotton.
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”).
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.
