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 pattern “Cuvrystr.“ and print on a black top with 2 differents COLORS: red or red on white .
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”).
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). Be careful it’s a fine textil!
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.
