Fair is Fair Trade, silkscreen.
Open edition & hand screen printed art print.
Back by popular demand! This is a brand new edition of our very popular, and very sold out Fair Is Fair Trade art print. Now reprinted and benefitting Fair Trade USA (see below).
My oh my, I love coffee so. And it makes me so happy to get to put my love for coffee down on paper in silkscreen inks! Might just scoot off to make another cup now. Mmmmmm.
This print was originally created in 2008 as a part of a coffee-themed art show to benefit a Peruvian fair trade collective. The text below the cup reads: “Fair is fair * Justo es justo”, a belief and practice that we think ought to be as ubiquitous as the iconic Greek diner & NYC take out cups.
Additional photos are from the hand silkscreen printing process.
