The Putuka's flag is still waving Our brand has always been a side project, and a "hobby" rather than a way to make money, it has experienced several ups and downs over the past 10 years, reaching its top popularity between 2003 and 2006, when our online store was quite popular, certainly gave us up to cover even the expenses :-)
We sold our t-shirts in countries all around the world, one fact that we had never dreamed, that a person in Australia (for instance) could wear one of our designs through the streets of their city.

The impossibility of living from selling our clothes (although we often had fantasies about it, thus was always clear that we had an almost impossible goal), and the many projects of all kinds in which the team of Putuka was immersed (film, design, music), bills to pay and especially the lack of time (not of ideas, we have over 100 sketches of t-shirts that were never printed), leave us no choice but to park our project definitely.

Finally we are going to unveil one of the great mysteries of humanity, "what means Putuka" (etymologically speaking). Basically means "small whore (prostitute)" or " scrubber " and would you believe it or not it has always been a loving expression between our group of friends of a lifetime. It is a unisex term care for both men and women and although it might seem very coarse (many people still are surprised to hear it for the first time), hides many nuances in the background.

Who has not ever dress "like a whore"? Showing more skin than decency dictated (by the way, what is the decency?), willing to be king / queen of the party and the target of attention. Seduce and be seduced.

Love Kills

As Renton said in Trainspotting: “They talk about heroin but you should see what love does to some people”. Love is a loaded weapon that can lead to a sweet, painful and violent death… you know that well. Handle it with care.
