artist series marbled tee - Christin Ripley
This one-of-a-kind hand-marbled T-shirt follows the 16th century Turkish Ebru tradition of marbling, by floating pigment atop a viscous Irish Moss Seaweed liquid, creating an organic pattern as the ink spreads across the liquid surface, then captured by carefully placing the fabric atop the thick liquid vat! You might spot evidence of how this shirt was hand-printed by a thin white line along the sides from flipping the shirt in the vat or a “white drip” near the back armpit where the liquid seaweed (carrageenan) often pools up when rotating the mold.

PLEASE NOTE: shirts are marbled in small batches, multiple shirts are printed in the same color-way, however each shirt is completely unique in pattern. You might not get the exact shirt in this picture, but one almost identical.
