It’s All in the Mix!

So we had this idea for the ultimate made-to-order design + silk-screening service… Rather than cutting and sewing two or more patterns together, wouldn’t it be great to come up with prints that incorporate those patterns into one screen? Your final product would be an interesting and unique mix of prints and patterns to create one quirky design…
Collection 2 from head-to-toeQuick-sketching and watercoloring makes “work” fun and is always the initial stage of our evolution of printing…

Then follows the computer rendering…

So were you able to guess what our subject matter is here? The answer is stated on the caption.

Finally printed on canvas, our friends at Bowery were very eager to experiment with our fabric designs and played around with the concept of leather-trimmed tote bags…

Do these Evolution of Printing original designs tickle your fancy? You may contact us at evolutionofprinting@yahoo.com if you’re interested in ordering these designs on canvas. Or you can even provide the fabric to create that cool dress, wall art or whatever you feel would best maximize these unique prints!

If you would like us to design for you or if have an existing design you’ve been excited to see printed on fabric…

Riding High with 13 Lucky Monkey

Internalizing… Feeling bad to the bone with 13 Lucky Monkey (a bad-a$s design duo of biker rings and jewelry) in order to produce some sketches for their customized bandannas…

13 Lucky Monkey x Evolution of Printing are forever fans of “Furoshiki”, literally meaning bath spread. A traditional Japanese way of wrapping basically anything, mostly as bundling or transporting things like bento boxes, a bottle of wine, fruits, cookies, or for wrapping presents and purchases as an eco-friendly alternative to paper and plastic and is considered “an indispensable tool in Japanese life”.

Modern ways to use this piece of cloth is as a fashion accessory like a scarf or a bandanna. Tie them onto your bag as an accent or hang them on the wall as décor. The possibilities are endless!

Thank you to the Ministry of the Environment Government of Japan for providing this wonderful, easy-to-follow guide.

Our second run, this time with a different colored paint…

Back for more! 13 Lucky Monkey’s unique collaboration with Heima’s My Apt. They requested us to print a smaller version on canvas to wrap their decorative and functional hooks…

We are inspired by the motorcycles we ride, the culture that goes along with it—the rock ‘n’ roll music, tattoos, religious iconography—it all goes hand in hand.” -13 Lucky Monkey

Back on the Bandanna Boat

And the bandanna is back on the fashion runways…

We are totally digging this review of Hedi Slimane’s Saint Laurent SS 2014 collection by style.com’s editor at large, Tim Blanks….

“What became much clearer in this collection is just how intensely Slimane distills his teenage dreams into the perfume of his version of Saint Laurent. He wasn’t old enough for rockabilly and the Teddy Boys and glam rock in their original form. What he got was all the pop re-editions. And that’s what showed up here, as splendidly styled as the cast of an Alasdair McLellan photo shoot. So the catwalk was a feverish stew of references. In fact, to borrow a song title from the New York Dolls—whose presence was felt more than once—there was a regular personality crisis. Picture Dolls’ guitarist Johnny Thunders in his bolo tie and bandana and red patent leggings. Or David Sylvian with his flossy Japan-era swoop of hair and glam bolero. Or Suede’s Brett Anderson, in a black leather biker and pipestem pants. (Train-spotter footnote: model Matt Hitt is in a band called Drowners, the title of Suede’s first single.) There was even a veiled reference to the Thin White Duke, Slimane’s influence of influences, in the last look: black suit, red hair, slicked.”

Final

All we have to do is finish the edges and we’re good to go!

These bandanna wraps are specially made for the Bonne x 13 Lucky Monkey project.  This collaboration involves a quirky, hat-making label and a duo of customized jewelers/silversmith bikers in creating limited-edition head pieces.  Wrapped “Furoshiki” style using these bandannas will be the boxed headpiece or the headpiece itself.  We here at Evolution of Printing are huge fans of this Japanese “cloth gift wrapping” as it cuts down the waste created from paper.  Click on the following link for the Ministry of the Environment Government of Japan’s guide on how to wrap using Furoshiki.
