CRAFT friend and tech fashionista Diana Eng has launched a new line of laser-distressed tees and tops.
Traditional distressed t-shirts are popular for their tattered and well-worn style. I use the accurate targeting of a laser cutter to precision distress floral cell-inspired lace patterns. The laser burns designs into a lightweight 100% cotton material. A special treatment is used to stabilize the lace pattern preventing the shirt from unraveling and creating a shirt that has a controlled distressed design which evolves gradually as the shirts are worn. The shirts are fairly durable, after all they are machine washable.
