Christin Ripley Marbled Tee
Our friend Christin Ripley has been a part of Commend for quite some time, from a Commend See project with Melanie Velarde to supplying us with gorgeous marbled tees, pillows and notebooks. Based in Hudson River Valley, she crafts unique colorful wears using time-tested techniques.
These one-of-a-kind hand-marbled T-shirts 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.
