HAND-MADE PRINTS

By tyttial | 26.10.2015

Silk screen printing is one of our favourite techniques, and we definitely wanted to handprint the first batches of t-shirts and fabric bags by our selves. It is so exciting to make everything from scratch and then see the design transferring on to the fabric.

The t-shirts and the fabric bags are made by the Finnish company Pure Waste. The fabrics for the products are made of cutting waste from clothing production lines. That kind of waste usually ends up in landfills, and only a very small amount of it is re-used. It saves a lot of resources to recycle this waste to create new fabric out of it. Also, the color of the fabric comes from the waste, so there is no need for washing or dyeing the final fabric.

Here are some pictures from our printing day!
