Wittgenstein’s Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus, Colour of Words Translation by Sarah Roseman

£ 39.00

Colour of Words translation of a short passage from Tractatus Logico Philosophicus by Ludwig Wittgenstein.

On hearing speech designer Sarah Roseman sees flashes of colour that are stimulated by the phonetic sounds of the spoken word. The condition is known as synaesthesia. Her key to the international phonetic alphabet is reproduced as part of the branding on the back of each Colour of Words shirt.

Our Colour of Words app will translate any text you give us: speeches, poetry, lyrics, the profane, the intimate, anything you want coded into subtle and meaningful colour. The result is shirts that are good to look at, intrinsically interesting, personal, meaningful and of course very comfortable.

Our t-shirts are unique for being wholly made with CoolMax freshFX. CoolMax is a patented fibre designed to wick perspiration and accelerate moisture evaporation, keeping wearers cooler and drier. This wicking feature of the fabric is made possible by micro channels engineered into the profile of and surface of the fibre. These channels are cleverly dimensioned to exploit the surface tension and capillary action of water. Being physical properties of the fibre, these channels endure and do not significantly diminish with wear or washing.

Antimicrobial (freshFX) treatment stops the propagation of odour producing bacteria. This is achieved by embedding silver salt crystals into the structure of the fibre. FreshFX treatment like the wicking is permanent and does not leach out with everyday use. These characteristics ensure the shirts remain cool, dry and odour free regardless of what you might do in them. Performance of the fabric is guaranteed through a certified and monitored manufacturing process.
