2022 UPDATE Greetings and thanks for the visit and amazing support! Last year was a challenging one for everyone, including the postal workers! Things are almost back to normal now, but please note orders to the USA are taking up to 6 weeks to arrive!

If you are still with us and reading on .. It is hard to find the right place on Etsy to thank you all so much for the continued purchases and favorites, as well as the awesome photos and positive reviews. We are really grateful for that, and we wish you could all come visit our atelier in Berlin and get a bigger picture of our vibe, as well as see some of our more custom works. As always, keep checking back in as new designs and artworks are being added from time to time :)

Oh yeah, we changed our name to Many Tentacles (the same as our shop in Berlin) as it better represents where we are at .. Lysergic forever, long live Many Tentacles ;)

We wish you all the best, health and solidarity.

About ManyTentacles

Sales 5,958
On Etsy since 2016

About us

It all began with some home printed t-shirts and baking them in the oven to fix the colors. Slowly it evolved, becoming 7 years helping run an open independent DIY workshop in Berlin where we worked collectively and taught beginners how to screen print. The great thing about that was always meeting new approaches and techniques, not only just to screen print but also to life.

In mid 2019 we were lucky to get a chance to start our own space, a studio and shop in the heart of Berlin which we called Many Tentacles. We still run open workshops there, as well as maintain our shop and our stall on the Mauer Park market in Berlin, spreading artwork in galleries, living rooms, bedrooms and toilet doors around the world ;)

    Owner, Assistant, Designer

    Its me ... the printer. Somehow I always end up with color on my fingers... no matter how slowly I print. (but not on your products!) I'm also responsible for getting your orders to you, so please get in touch with questions or strange requests ;)

  • Maria Cukor

    Designer, Maker

    Maria illustrates some patches and artworks, creates lino cuts and tiny intricate origami pieces, as well as doing all our sewing on a pedal power machine. Detail, patience, perfection... old school.

Sizing details

For our t-shirts, bags, sweaters and hoodies, a sizing chart is included inside the listing images.
For patches, all sizes are clearly written in the description.

The best way to find your size, is to compare our size chart to a favourite t shirt or hoody you already own. Lay it out on the ground and measure it was a ruler or measuring tape.

Care instructions

We print onto 100% cotton in most cases. See individual listings for the exceptions.

Generally, screenprinted garments should be cold washed inside out. Its better for the environment too! Thats why we also recommend avoiding tumble drying.

At wash temperatures above 40degrees , expect some shrinkage.

A good tip for tshirts - when you hang them up to dry, that is the best time to 'straighten them out' to keep the seams nicely lined up, and avoid twisting and uneven stretching.
