Art Collective Prints T-Shirts and Tote Bags from Urban Surfaces

This Berlin-based art collective gets their inspiration from the streets – literally.

Using urban surfaces across Europe, art collective raubdruckerin creates graphical patterns on t-shirts, hoodies, tote bags, and posters.

Calling themselves “pirate printers”, they travel between different European cities to hand-print their collection on-site.

According to them, their focus is to “explore the surfaces of cities, searching for overlooked, seemingly insignificant details on the pavement, which turn out to be true urban design pieces”.

As for their guerrilla printing process, it seems like the collective is actually quite considerate to environment – using only eco-friendly ink for their prints and certified organic cotton for their t-shirts.

To find out more about them, please visit their website or check out their store for more designs.
