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…

Summer to a Tee

We love silk-screening on t-shirts! We got it down to a tee. So when a friend commissioned us to re-design an existing statement tee to give as gifts to her friends and co-workers, no time was wasted on getting back to the drawing board. “Re-designing” to us is just like starting from scratch.

The original design…
Coffee

 

Summer is here! The sun is out! But we’d rather stay indoors and silk-screen!

Our friend couldn’t resist and chose the two colors! We wish she could have given us one too!

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.
