We designed a graphic pattern based on the Aubusson tapestries with foliage and Paradise birds. We printed this pattern in gold ink on Muskat grey paper using a risograph.

A riso, or a risograph is a printing machine that’s a bit between photocopying and screen printing. You can print in many different colors, but like screen printing, you can only print one color at a time. The ink is based on soy oil. The risograph is extremely energy efficient and generates a minimal amount of waste.

Looking for a printing technique that is much more bespoke and tactile, the risograph fit this effect really well.
