PRINTA: Eco-fashion, silk-screen printing and BudapestFrancesca Palange
Printa is one of the first environmentally conscious brands in Hungary that is engaged in designing and making a wide range of products. Be it a souvenir, a piece of clothing, accessories or graphics, their ideology is predominantly based on three main words: Budapest, eco-fashion and silk-screen printing. Printa’s Pest Collection is composed of eco-friendly materials that remodel the conventional souvenirs with a fresh touch of silk-screen printing. Budapest’s non-official symbols decorate the collections’ T-shirts, bags, notebooks and postcards. Their graphics are inspired by the capital’s whirl, street art, typography and some personal interpretations of city maps. Additional attention is paid to the sustainable management of resources and alternative material usage; hence their clothing collection is following the principles of ‘slow fashion’. AWARE by Printa is the only eco-fashion brand in Hungary that is highly concerned with making use of such cast-offs. Following the principles of ‘upcycling’ they repaint and retailor these left-offs, and decorate them by applying colours in definite patterns. This way, fabrics are turned into peculiar and unique pieces of clothing. Old leather jackets, men’s shirts, pullovers, as well as household textiles and sartorial waste become newly valuable and useful. They also use up peculiar materials such as medical gowns and worn performance apparels.
