The idea of making a T-shirt that modernises not only natural fibres, but also a piece of our country artisanal tradition comes from the encounter between Margherita e Alessia. It is an ancient and sustainable know-how. As a matter of facts, the design is printed in a small selection of colours obtained from minerals: red, blue, green as well as the original rust colour, obtained using rusty tools. Such colour is the protagonist of both the T-shirts series and this project that wants to tell and revive ancient traditions and skills of our country from Venice.
T-shirts are available for purchase at ACP - Palazzo Franchetti bookshop or online on Instagram @acppalazzofranchetti.
Artisans from Antica Stamperia Carpegna have been involved in the making of the handprinting with carved pear wood mould and natural colors. It is in the hinterland small town with the same name on the line between Romagna and Marche.
