Nad chats – About brand new bags and a restructured shop

Hello there,

it’s finally happened: the new cotton bags are finally done!^_____^  With a lot of love and care. Micha and I did lots of original handcraft inside the screen print laboratory at the HAW Hamburg (the university I attend). You can follow the development of said bags step by step in the gallery down below- and the result is from tomorrow on officially available to purchase at the shop!

We layered filters, applied prints on textiles and dried paint manually for 8 hours straight. Preparing the motives took quite a long time as well. I drew the original copy on an A3-sized piece of paper with fineliners which I then had to scan and afterwards edit digitally to get the best result possible.

By the way: You’ll need to have a completely black and UV-light resistant template on your transparent foil (or paper) in order to prepare your filter for screen printing. It might not seem obvious at first but it’s very important to clean your filter with a lot of care and to make sure the water jet of your high-pressure cleaner is not too hard. If you had had too much pressure, the grid (the small little dots on your motive) would’ve been destroyed and rendered invisible on the final product.

Also, this is the fourth motive for a bag I’ve created. Which one is your personal favorite?

That’s it for this week. Again, I’d be more than happy to get feedback, criticism, questions as well as suggestions from you in the comments below. ^____^ It’s especially important to tell me what you like and dislike and what sort of motives you’d like to see from me in the future!

See you next Sunday!

 Nadine

  1. Eure Arbeit hat sich gelohnt. Es ist etwas sehr gutes dabei herausgekommen.Glückwunsch! Alle Motive sind toll. Am besten gefällt uns die Baumwolltasche mit den drei Eulen.
    Eure fleißige Arbeit wird viel Zuspruch erhalten. Nun müsst Ihr nur noch einen Sponsor finden,der Euch weitere Experimente bzw. eine Produktion in größeren Stückzahlen
    ermöglicht. Wir würden auch einen kaufen. Macht sie nicht zu billig. Unikate! Wir drücken Dich und Michi.<3

    Vielen Dank für eure konstruktive Kritik! :) Das Motiv mit den Eulen war das allererste Motiv, das ich gedruckt habe. Ich war sogar am überlegen, eine Neuauflage der Eulentaschen zu machen, da ich damals nur fünf Stück gedruckt habe. Die Druckvorlagen habe ich sogar noch.
    Ich habe noch viele Ideen für weitere Motive, da wäre ein Sponsor natürlich eine gute Sache! :) Liebe Grüße aus Hamburg!
