Every Tshirt SEME is colored with colors from food, usually fruit or vegetables. It all started with the idea of using natural colors to dye fabrics, then we thought about the food, everyone knows that the fruit stains are difficult to remove, we came up with the idea of using this power actively staining, and then use food to voluntarily stain our tshirt! So we started to experience about a year ago, looking between fruit and vegetable foods more staining and trying to match them to the seasonality, we currently use mainly: pomegranate (red), beet (purple), squid ink (black), tobacco and coffee (brown) curry and saffron (yellow).
Let smoothies, then we boil in order to reduce the liquid and isolate the colored pigments, then dilute again the color concentrate with a fixative solution, which helps the colors not to bleed (with washing at 30 ° there is a partial fading, that after the 2 washing hangs, remaining unchanged over time).
Sift carefully the colors to put in common vaporizers, which then use it to spray the color on clothes. Through some stencil reproduce geometric and natural shapes, creating always different designs, do not exist 2 equal, all SEME are personal and unique.
What we enjoy most is to show live on the process of making, we do it through a project that we called SEME99, in which we cook our t-shirt with a chef and a DJ.
From the same ingredients are prepared tasty dishes, and colors SEME30°, used to dye T-shirts and dresses.
people can choose: the clothes (tshirt MAN / WOMAN, or dresses), the colors-ingredients SEME30 ° to paint your clothe, and stencils of different shapes and plants to customize like you want. So while you can taste the chef's preparations you can witness live the coloring of the clothes and, why not, dye it personally! All accompanied by the DJ, who, through the sampling of live sound tells what happens between chefs, SEME and the public, in total synergy with the performance and creating soundtracks always different.
After a year of research and live performances, we thought Eppela to help us build a website dedicated to SEME30 °, we would like to deepen our research on natural colors and create a line of clothing, finally make a video documentary that will help us tell you about the SEME project and many others that we carry.
In return for your support we have created a special edition of tshirt for men women and kids, exclusively to supporters of Eppela.
Help us to cook more t-shirts and realize our projects.
