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, in the corner, with the white pattern « Anhalter Bahnhof« on a black top.
The original image is an urban sketch that I drew with my calligraphic pen, wash and charcoal on the 19th of November 2009, directly at the location in Berlin-Kreuzberg. This illustration represents a ruin of an important railway stations of Berlin, severely damaged in second World War. I was sitting in a beautiful bed of daisies at Askanischer Platz. In the right, in the background of the urban sketch, we can see the roof of the Tempodrom. Between the two buildings there are a lot of contrasts, like often in Berlin.
I needed one hour for this illustration.
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.
