The main focus is to explore the surfaces of cities, searching for overlooked, seemingly insignificant details on the pavement, which turn out to be true urban design pieces. They reveal unobserved parts of cities, that are full of history, diversity and creativity.

The process of converting a detail of the city into an image, displayed on somebody’s chest, can be considered as reversed street art. A part of the city is being extracted from its origin and brought to new life in a different context. By carrying the image around, people become part of the project themselves. To stimulate our perception regarding the relationship to our surrounding, refine everyday routines, as well as beeing sensitive to the beauty hidden in the unexpected, are main motivations of the project.

Every piece is hand printed, mainly on-site in the public space, as a footprint of the city. All products are made of certified organic cotton, the Hoodies having a certain part of recycled polyester, and are fair traded. The producers are part of the Fairwear Foundation (FWF) and are certified by the global Standard for organic fibers GOTS. raubdruckerin only uses eco friendly ink for their printworks. The ink is water-based and 100% free from petrol.

raubdruckerin is based in Berlin, but works as well regularly in other metropolis like Amsterdam, Lisbon and Paris.
