work in progress


A few weeks ago, while visiting Mossagårdsfestivalen, we bought a 100% hemp shirt which really felt nice, like linen. It’s going to be interesting to see how it ages.

Industrial Hemp or “hemp”, can provide many of the raw materials  we need as a society to function.  Hemp food, hemp oil, hemp plastics, hemp insulation, hemp concrete, hemp paper, and other hemp composites all available today!  And yes, the list goes on and on. Plus, Hemp is both Eco-friendly and Renewable.   Hemp is one of the fastest growing plants in the world producing about 10 tons of dry product per acre per year.  Hemp was one of the first plants to be processed and used by humans making the history of hemp over 12000 years long!  Hemp Building materials are becoming more and more known and available as well!

says and further:

Hemp, like flax (linen) is one of the bast fibers. When weaving with hemp yarns, you can treat it like a linen yarn, using similar setts. It improves and softens with age. Hemp is also mildew resistant, making it an excellent yarn for towels, bath linens and carpet warp as well as in fine table linens and clothing.

Interesting! We hope you will find some hemp tote bags or hemp scarves  with our print soon!

This is jollygoodfellows new screen printing home. We just need to get a good working table in place, more lightning and a bass drum to the drum kit, this room is going to be super!

jollygoodfellow at Trosa Tryckeri


Yesterday we were at the Trosa Printing House, an environmentally certified printer close to Stockholm. We were there to see that everything went right when our baby, urbnCal 2012, came into the world. And it did, we are very delighted! Now we just wait for the ink to dry completely, the sheets to be trimmed and the holes to be punched. Then it’s time for release!

Helsinki photo shoot


On our first trip to shoot urbnCal 2012 Helsinki we immediately got a feeling for Kallio, a part of Helsinki we were not so familiar with. We can’t help but love signs like this one. If you look close you will see the whole Tanttu family in this picture.

Pear Vanilla Strawberry


Perhaps this is a sketch of the perfect summer t-shirt. We are thinking of making the screen actual size, straight on, would fit fine on t-shirts for both adults and kids.

By the way, we just heard that you now have ice cream with bacon flavour over there (=USA) but jollygoodfellow is a bit old-school and likes the classic pear-vanilla-strawberry.

The lace curtain


We have started to experiment with an old lace curtain, trying to transfer the structure to paper and perhaps combine with screen printing later.
It feels nice, but today the best way to enjoy it was just to watch the sun filter through it.
