Raubdruckerin proves that you don’t need expensive and complicated printing mechanism to print your own custom T-shirts. The Berlin-based initiative called Raubdruckerin (literally translated ‘Pirate Printers’) has taken to the city streets with ink and a paint roller. The group looks for geometrically designed city fixtures like the manhole covers to print custom designed tees.
They apply the ink directly to the object and use it to stamp the design on tees and tote bags. Although they are based in Berlin, Raubdruckerin designers trot all over the globe to find interesting designs to give life to their fashion offerings. The group took to Lisbon, Amsterdam, and Paris to find the real pieces of street art. The exclusiveness of the street cultures also offers a unique insight into the lifestyle of that city.
Given that Raubdruckerin works in a public space rather than a studio like the well-known designers, a distinct theatrical element is a part of their merchandise. If you are not located in Berlin, you can still get the unique tees via their online shop.
