Although not all manhole covers are as pretty as the ones in Japan, apparently they are still nifty graphics for shirts, hoodie and tote bag, especially for tourist. The artist collective behind Berlin-based Raubdruckerin (pirate printer) produces shirts and bags imprinted with public street fixtures such as manhole covers, vents, and utility grates. The overlooked geometric patterns and typographic forms of urban signage out of those utility covers are pretty retro and untie due to the “hand-made process”. To make a print, collective applies ink directly to the streets and prints on-site in locations like Amsterdam, Lisbon, and Paris and then sell their creations through an online shop. Hence, if you don’t mind where your t-shirt get printed, that might be an interesting collection you can have.
