STORY: This is my favorite T-shirt because it has a beautiful story behind it….
When I lived in Barcelona, I had a roommate named Luis, who was from Valladolid (Central Spain). He left his hometown; the major reason was to get over his mother’s death. After several years, he took a long vacation to clean up his mother’s old house for rental. After the vacation, Luis came back to Barcelona with a lot of antiques. He gave me a big sewing basket with lots of sewing tools, dozens of different colors of threads and lots of antique lace. I had just started to sell my T-shirts at some boutiques in Barcelona and he thought I might need to use them on my future designs.
I never thought about using lace on T-shirt before, but to show appreciation for his kindness and to not waste that beautiful antique lace, I decided to give it a try. I kept this motivation in mind. After a couple of weeks, when I was wandering in a bookstore, I saw a children’s book. It was about a spider who moved into a big clean house, and its first thought was: what a boring place, it needs a lot of knitting! So the spider knitted a lot of decorations in that house… but when it had almost finished its fabulous decoration in a corner, the house’s owner kicked it out…
I enjoyed that cute book very much and I also got this idea for a spider knitting lace. Before the spider had finished its work, it fell down!

THE WAY I MADE IT: Silkscreen printing on 100 % cotton Purple T-shirt. Sewn lace around the collar. Stitched a black button as the body of spider and hand painted it's eyes.

THE WAY TO WASH IT:
Hand-wash it, or turn it inside-out and put it in a laundry bag to machine-wash it.

Size Medium
M/4-6 Chest/33-35
