Harlem Silk Screening | T-Shirts by The Bandanna Almanac

Result

Harlem is the brainchild of Shimpei Saito. This is his 5th year running his screen printing business. Deep in the heart of Kitahorie in Osaka.

I always try to keep things as local as possible, and with people who posses a great attention to detail. Our first project together is this skull design I worked up a few months ago with a brush-pen and a piece of paper. It is incredibly exciting to see my sketches turn into a print. Moreover, it’s really cool to see them on a t-shirt.

The first color we worked on is a rust-red color. Trying to find that dirty beni red. Even though I am working with modern equipment and techniques the colors are incredibly important to get right. The idea was an oxidized rusty lipstick. Similar to a traditional Japanese stamp color.

Time consuming process. Each printed one-by-one. These will be available for sale soon so please keep an eye out for that news on the new Goods page.
