Layered, deeply rooted and respectfully an ode to Delft Blue and the art of tattooing. Delft Blue earthenware and tattoos have more in common than first meets the eye. There are parallels in the origin, meaning and craftmanship. The collection Schiffmacher Royal Blue Tattoo is a unique collaboration between two traditional crafts from an old world. Brought here overseas from the East; rich in culture, meaning, tradition and symbolism. Art forms that are applied by hand, only once. With a needle in the skin, with a paintbrush on baked clay.
Especially for this collaboration Henk Schiffmacher and the Royal Delft master painters have designed a collection where the two worlds almost literally meet. The collection consists of hand painted pieces and transfer items.
