With great experience in hand-pulled silkscreen prints on paper and a strong interest in textiles, Alexandra Anagnostopoulou began, with this bag series, to apply her technical knowledge on cotton fabric. The fabric designs (donkeys, olives, waves) are inspired by Greek nature and art. After the pattern design, followed the process of printing.
