T-shirt s/s Padre
The fabric is 100% cotton. The t-shirt is one of the most famous prints by the artist Fosca Democrito, with whom we collaborated for this new collection. The prints are traditionally made, hand coated, Cyanotype blueprints, which have been carefully crafted following a recipe that has been around since astronomer & scientist Sir John Herschel discovered the process in 1842. This traditional process involves hand coating the paper stock with a chemical solution using a hake brush. Then, once the paper is dried, a negative template is applied and exposed to the sun to create these wonderful and distinctive blueprints. Due to the nature of this process, brush strokes and slight blemishes such as chemical stains may be evident; this is very indicative of the handcrafted design, which makes them all quite unique.
