Black and White "Sisar" Poster
”Sisar” is the word for ”sister” in Finish. This print is dedicated to Esa’s late mother and all other sisters. In the 60’s and 70’s there was an unwritten rule in some churches that women shouldn’t cut their hair but wear it in a topknot (pingstknut in swedish), the tighter the better. To get the right feel for this print we took pictures of timber in the Finnish countryside.
The poster is screen printed by hand in black and white on off-white paper. Rolled and packaged with care.

Lisa and Esa Tanttu started the brand Jollygoodfellow around 10 years ago and it has grown organically since then. Lisa is swedish and Esa comes from Finland. They screen print their slowly growing collection of posters and childrens clothes by hand in Sweden.
