The Cyanotote: A Solar Printed Cyanotype Tote Bag


Now you can design and produce your own blueprint on the Cyanotote bag from Rollo Books!

Cyanotype is an early photographic printing process that produces a cyan-blue print.

All you need are some objects of your choosing, sunlight, and water to imprint shapes onto the bag’s cotton fabric, which is coated with a light-sensitive solution. Depending on the intensity of the sun and your chosen exposure time, the green color of the fabric will turn silvery.

The design will appear as a photogram, a negative shadow image resembling an x-ray. Imprints will vary in tone, depending on the transparency of the objects used. Your creation is both permanent and water-resistant.
