The Lotos Eaters

By Raekomakino



The Lotos Eaters is a little design project, by me raekomakino, or Rachel as I am more commonly known! I am a graphic designer living and studying in Dublin. Recently, I did a project to design a set of prints for silk scarves, the idea evolved and expanded and became the basis for designs for t-shirts and greetings cards too. People started to show a real interest in my designs and wanted to buy them. But I had only prototypes and no money to produce pieces to sell. So I decided to look to fund:it for help to make this happen.

I want to be able to produce made to order beautiful silk scarves, T-shirts and greetings cards, but things like that don’t come cheap! Any funding so far has come from me, if and when I have it. My main objective is to see my designs come to life being worn and loved by people. With your help I can provide you with a product and we can achieve this objective together.

The Scarves

The scarves are all 100% silk and are 130mm x 130mm. There are four limited edition designs to choose from. Each scarf will come beautifully packaged in a specially designed gift box.

The T-Shirts

The T-Shirts are All-Over Printed T-Shirts which are made using white, Vapor brand T-Shirts produced specifically for dye sublimation. Vapor tees are made with high-quality, 100% spun polyester to deliver the look and feel of cotton with the benefits of polyester, like, superior sweat wicking. Dye sublimation printing produces vibrant, super-soft, permanent prints that are guaranteed to never crack, peel or flake. There are four limited edition designs to choose from. Each T-Shirt will come beautifully packaged in a specially designed gift box.

The Cards

The cards are 145mm x 145mm square multi coloured typographic cards. There are 25 designs to choose from.
