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!

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
