Zen And Fuka – The new code in streetwear and t-shirt design

The Story
Samurai warriors follow strict codes known as the “The way of the warrior” or Bushido, and are bound to their lord and community by duty and honour. A Samurai Master counted on absolute loyalty from his vassals in order to implement military and economic statibility for his community and to prevent chaos. The loyalty of the Samurai to their lord was so strong that warriors would fight to their death in order to protect their master’s castle or commit seppuku (an honurable death rather than surrender to the enemy) should they have felt they disgraced their lord.

Upon the loss of their lord, a samurai becomes masterless and known as a drifting person or Ronin. The famous tale of the 47 ronin occured during the start of the 18th century, when a group of samurai became leaderless after their lord was forced to commit seppuku by another lord. The Ronin avenged their masters honour by secretly assassinating the opposing lord. Knowingly as a result these Ronin were forced to commit Seppuku themselves. This depicts the strength of the Samurai ways of sacrifice, loyalty, skills of combat (yocu) and honour until death.

Zen and Fuka embodies the extremes of great and evil in the samurai’s way of life and the celebrates the code of sacrifice, loyalty and honour to their lord.

CARL FROCH v JEAN PASCAL

It’s always a pleasure to print t-shirts associated with a sporting success, but the experience is all the sweeter when it concerns a contender from Nottingham.October screen printed Carl Froch’s t-shirts for his recent WBC Super Middleweight fight with Jean Pascal.

The distressed design led us to the decision that discharge inks should be used, along with an enzyme washed garment – this created a vintage look to match what turned out to be a vintage performance, reminiscent of the great Benn v Eubank encounters of the past.

 

Carl will no doubt now get the opportunities he deserves – Madison Square Garden next summer? Watch this space.
