After the elemental theme of Air for its Spring/Summer 2001 collection, and preceding the Fire, Earth, and Ether themes of its Spring/Summer 2002 collection, maharishi collaborated with Futura for its Water-themed Autumn/Winter 2001/02 collection. The fabric used for the canvases and the jacket on this page is printed with the ‘Fu Splinter’ camouflage pattern, which was inspired by a Polish 1950s ‘splinter’ design because, in keeping with the Water theme, it features the ‘rain strait’ motif. The pattern, which incorporates Futura’s pointman, his tag, and the maharishi temple logo, was used for garments as well as a range of canvases. These were each signed on the reverse, produced in a limited edition of a maximum of ten, and featured either the printed fabric only, the printed fabric with embroidery, or the printed fabric with hand-painting and embroidery.
