Designer Makes Her Clothing Unique By Printing On Manhole Covers

It's hard for fashion designers to make their clothes stand out on the crowded racks without taking drastic measures, and those who are dying to stand out keep creating outfits no sober person would be caught dead in.

So if you want to make your clothes stand out you should take a note from the Berlin-based clothing company Raubdruckerin and keep it simple. Oh, and you should do all your printing straight on the street.

Raubdruckerin translates to "pirate printer", which is a fun way of describing their process of using cool looking manhole covers from every city they visit as printing plates.

First they clean the manhole cover, then they apply a lacquer to the cover and press a garment or bag onto the design, creating a really cool looking garment or tote that is also a memento from cities around the world.
